RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has come to the aid of two overdue boaties, as part of a multi-agency search, in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Police tasked the crew shortly after 3:30pm on Sunday after the men's boat hadn't returned when it was expected to.
Crew on board the Australian Maritime Safety Authority's Cairns-based Challenger jet, which was also involved in the search, spotted two people on a beach on Margaret Island.
The AMSA crew quickly relayed the information to the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew, who headed directly to the island.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter travelled around 800 kilometres throughout the mission and had to make two stops for fuel.
