Touring the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital
Monday, April 30, 2018

During the last week of April, Orbis flew their Flying Eye Hospital into MEM and a few of us were lucky enough to score a tour of this state-of-the-art airborne medical teaching facility. The plane Orbis uses is a repurposed DC-10, donated by our friends at FedEx, and its mission is to heal and share medical and surgical knowledge with doctors around the world to help cure preventable blindness. 

From Orbis: "The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital is unlike any plane you’ve seen before. A state-of-the-art teaching facility complete with operating room, classroom and recovery room - this amazing aircraft has been an example of the marriage between medicine and aviation since 1982."

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

Great ?I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, website theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..
