A MISSION an hour has kept the RACQ CareFlight crews in-flight for most of the day.

Since this morning helicopters have flown to five missions in five hours.

The Toowoomba crew responded to three of these jobs, one of these a serious head-on crash south of Gatton this morning. 

Three people were injured after two four wheel drives collided at Tenthill.

A man in his 30s, with suspected internal injuries was flown to the Toowoomba Hospital for treatment.

His condition was stable.

Two women, who were in separate vehicles, were transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Earlier in the day the Toowoomba crew flew to a Kilkivan property to airlift a female patient.

Meanwhile the Gold Coast crew flew to Beaudesert Hospital to airlift an elderly lady to Gold Coast University Hospital after she suffered a severe allergic reaction.

The Bundaberg crew was also airborne, flying to Monto to airlift two patients who required further care, to Bundaberg Hospital.

Details of the other jobs are unknown as the team has yet to return to base.
