Edith Cranston is 84 years old and living all by herself when she has a heart attack. She manages to get to the radio and contact the RFDS. When Kate, Geoff and Sam show up she makes Kate promise that they won't take her to the hospital - she wants to die where she is and where she and her family has been for 60 years. Geoff doesn't want to leave Edith there, but Kate insists and they start arguing. Finally Sam suggests that they both stay there. Edith talks to Kate about Geoff and tells her that she shouldn't let him go because people you love don't come along very often. Edith then talks to Geoff about Kate and asks if he has told how he feels about her. Then she dies and leaves everything she owns to the RFDS. Kate tells Geoff that she prefers to stand with both feet on the ground. Chris gets a message from Mike that says that he is in Paris and he couldn't take the Tiger Moth with him so he gave it to Chris. Hurtle returns with a stolen Rolls Royce and Vic tries to help him hide ... Written by Johanna Swärd
