Ways To Raise Funding / Re: Funding the new hangar - how?
« on: September 29, 2017, 10:28:37 PM »
I don't think anything could move her whole - too heavy for the airlander and that's about all that could cope with the wingspan. That's why I feel we might have to resign ourselves to her being static only in the medium term if the hangar doesn't happen.

Airlander 10 can lift 13 tonnes.  The Mil-26 helicopter can lift 20 tonnes, but not far.  The Vulcan weighs 37 tonnes empty, but XH558 is supposedly lighter.  If you took out the engines that would only save 8 tonnes?  If they build the bigger Airlander then a lift may be possible?  50 miles to Elvington, 85 miles to Bruntingthorpe.

747-400F at Doncaster today.

They unloaded it very quickly.

Lots of lorries to take away the cargo - from Mcvities (were they delivering the supply of Jaffas for next weeks work)?

Ginger Nut shortage

This film is slow to load for me, but you do get instructed on how to use the SABT.

There is a film on bombing up the Vulcan, but its not online, should anybody from the trust want to enquire.


Ways To Raise Funding / Tax discs
« on: October 16, 2014, 10:14:14 PM »
Just an idea to see if it can go anywhere ...

With the demise of the car tax disc, can we produce a Vulcan equivalent that would fit in the now empty slot on every windscreen? We would sell it in the same way as the fundraising certificates and the buyer would cut it out to fit maybe from a choice of designs?

It needs an amusing strap line to replace the bar code, which is where better suggestions are needed from you all .... but to get you started.

Permit to Howl
Delta Tax
4 Jet License
Noise Permit

It could have all the usual details and at first glance would look similar

Vulcan Flies (background text instead of expires)
30 Sep 2015 (assumed end of flying season or forever :()
XH558 (registration)
Avro (manufacturer)
B2 (class)
Stamp of issue VTSC Doncaster etc.

If it could be made amusing then it might sell well and start a trend?  The key is to be quick off the mark.

What do you think?
