Engineering / Re: Extraordinary General Meeting Needed?

Good to hear Roberts detailed explanations and all credit to him having to face unreasonable overbearing questions from Dan O'Hagen. UKAH has always hated the VTTS and the Vulcan --that is clearer to see from the questioning . Robert stood his ground well .

Happy to have received my Founding Guardian invitation today . Despite worries , I'm still behind this all the way and although things are not happening as quickly as we would like as money is always an issue -- the future plans are  exciting . Lets see of we can move the donate page up a bit .....:)

Sorry ascot you misunderstand - and sorry if I offended. I was mearly saying  :) that those who have put their hearts and souls into the project shouldn't have so much hatred directed at them . Plans don't always go how we want them to go and that isn't always the fault of those people . Lets just all try to get along a bit more and channel our efforts into more support for the project . I am naturally a half glass person and just feel we need to pull together a bit more .

deeply saddened that those who have put their heart and soul into the project from the start are being  "called to account" as it were . From the top to the volunteers they've given blood , sweat and tears ,and  health scares-- all so we could have that special dream fullfiled . From restoration --which they said couldn't be done  ! to many years of safe flying displays which brought the general public to our cause . Nobody was surprised more than me that we find ourselves in this position , the plans to move to Doncaster made sense when look deep into the future ETNA plans .I do feel the airport hasn't been fair in moving the goalposts from the original plan when moving there --- but that is not the fault of the trust .
I'm with Eddie on this --he too can see the bigger picture .  I was pleased to see the latest newsletter (perhaps could have been aired earlier ) as it went into greater detail about the complexities of how we are where we are. We the club members - soon to be Founding guardians - have been through many dark times from the beginning and we have ALWAYS come out the other side . I understand that some are more than angry about the situation now -- but again that's happened in the past at times , but  I note the donate page is still steadily creeping up , so there is still the love and support there , just feel we all need to regroup and look at the positives . Sure some media attention wouldn't go amiss ..........

agree David . So many negative comments . Have to appreciate the effort was all about the farewell tour and all that involved . Sure now that has been done the next phase will have equally as much effort put into it and we will all be informed

also another piece in Mailonline this morning . Some picture were the same as yesterday , but some new fantastic head on aerial ones from Andy Rouse photography . Sadly his copyright are across the pictures . Wondering if this was organised by the trust for forthcoming book ?
