"Many thanks for taking the time to reply Steve"

As Alexandr said - "simples". The same explanation should have come from "t'management" but there you go.

Sam's reply says volumes about the Trust.  if the aircrew were needed earlier and had to stay overnight, no question.  How much would the cost saved compare to a few 100lbs of JET A1 cursing through the engines. :(


The actual cost was two destroyed engines and many shows cancelled during the investigation into the incident and loss of good will and trust by hundreds if not thousands of supporters due to the Trusts handling of the investigation and failure to be transparent as to the actual cause and who was culpable !

I would wager that the "Public Access" will involve an outlay of at least a couple of hundred quid ! well out the reach of your average ex supporter/volunteer !!  :-\

Nice to see the "engineers" have found the adjustable spanners in the tool box

You beat me to it Sam,when I worked on civil aircraft after I left the RAF anybody caught using or possessing an adjustable spanner was sacked on the spot !

It changed back to the original title after I had posted...

So sad the way this has ended.  The "celebration" at Bruntingthorpe looks like nothing more than an elaborate piss take and another way to raise money for the wage bill.  I see there is now yet another "limited" opportunity to get your name on the wing, I guess these will carry on until 558 is completely covered with sticky back plastic  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

At least the plastic will keep the rain out of the joints Sam !!

Perhaps the Trust would like to take a leaf out of "The Peoples Mosquito" news letter that has just been published and I quote


A key pillar of our existence is to be honest to the public on funds raised and monies allocated.


The TPM board remain fully committed to this policy of open and transparent reporting of all our activities, and always willing to answer any question on our accounts.


I live in hope ::)

especially after the Trust blanking the Club Committee with regards to the final flight

Getting really tired of you perpetuating that lie Mike, and surprised no-one from committee has seen fit to correct it (which itself speaks volumes). For the record, EVERY member of committee was told by the Trust, in advance, of final flight date. At least one member was in hangar 3 before and after flight, as I've seen their photos. Far from blanked, committee were in an extremely select group to be aware of flight date, even some aircrew didn't know!
Only repeating what some members of the committee have told me,as you say no one has seen fit to correct  my and others comments !

I seem to remember a conversation with a committee member and the figure of £5k per month was mentioned,money well spent   ::) especially after the Trust blanking the Club Committee with regards to the final flight (never got an answer to that one did we Steve !)

The whole thing stinkss worse than the sewage farm that 558 is now parked next to (and don't get me started on the wasted funds used to buy the Canberra bits)
