Excellent - I Facebooked him in the quest for cash the time before last we were short of dosh. He never replied but obviously is aware and someone has got him involved.

Just browsing on Fighter Control and noticed someone posted this yesterday in their Vulcan thread.

I guess all will become clearer in the next newsletter (and no - I don't know anything at all about it, just a hunch that this would all make a good article for Friday..?)

Either way, even if someone had made a donation (and again, I honestly don't know one way or the other) it would almost certainly be something kept private between themself & the Trust?

Blimey, good news during an appeal??  Anyone would think 558 was airworthy and ready to go, she had a home that wasn't closing and everything bar the immediate cashflow was looking pretty healthy!  Wait a minute..... ;-)

Fingers crossed for this, and for a good showing on Sunday.  My favourite aircraft at a show with my favourite brewery providing a beer tent.  :-) :-)

So am I right in assuming that if this is to be her abode for a while there has to be CAA approval of the hangar set up again?

Excellent. The light floor finish does give a very 'airy' feel to the hangar.

Yes there will have to be a CAA audit of the new home.......... They had to do it at Lyneham so do change there.

Things are really looking UP.

Just need to get the dosh in the barrel. Two early shows should help considerably though.

Well Done all.

The floors do look smart - but shiny floors generally mean slippery too!!

I agree Mayfly & Shiny floors mean someone has to "Bull them up to make them shine" Oh well back to the " RAF Bull nights for many I suppose" ;)  ;)

I must admit she looks really good in the New Home, I know Smiler & co  will be finding places to hide Jaffa cakes :lol:  :lol:
