Ways To Raise Funding / No more toners from me??
« on: June 25, 2015, 03:43:54 PM »
Not sure where to post this but i must admit im a little disappointed with the lack of response from the admin team at Doncaster.

Ive now email 5 times without reply about Toner donations.  Im not talking the odd few, im talking in the hundreds and a regular trip.  Plus 4 boxes full of mobile phones and Blackberrys with the potential of even more of these too over the coming few months.

Admittedly im reluctant to look elsewhere as I think VTTS is a trust that deserves as much funding as they can raise and even though what I send are only worth pence each in recycling, I thought even that would be appreciated but it sadly seems not.

Shame really, ive got about 3 vans full of kit to find a home for.  Im sure you can appreciate im not going to divulge who ive contacted or who I work for (although the company I work for know what I do with them)

I am hoping though that whoever we use for recycling, will make the payment out to VTTS so I can still feel play a part in fundraising

Watched this on Channel 5's catchup thingymebob.

Very interesting, however, some of the gaps this bloke was crawling through, ill leave him to it.  (you really need to see the last place he visits)

Aviation Waffle / Blackpool Airport
« on: October 15, 2014, 02:53:31 PM »
ive seen on the BBC News that Blackpool Airport will soon be closing and at the top of the article appears a Vulcan Bomber which was at the entrance.

Anyone know what happened to it?  I really hope it didnt go for scrap.

Aviation Waffle / Eastbourne 2015
« on: October 05, 2014, 06:00:51 PM »
Im not entirely sure where to post this so apologies if its in the wrong place.

Out of interest, what does it take to get XH558 to an Airshow?  I understand it needs to be financed and sponsored somehow?

Im currently planning on going to Eastbourne again in 2015 and wondered what are the chances of it being there for its potential last flying year.

Wondering if it worth starting some campaign to help fund the trip even just for one of the 4 days that they have their show.

General Photography Discussion / Scarborough today
« on: June 28, 2014, 09:30:40 PM »
While I can appreciate its not the best picture in the world and its never going to win any prizes, im quite happy with it.

I borrowed a 12mp digital camera for it to try it out before I buy a better one.  I have a few more but 15x optical zoom and no tripod made them not look that good.

Hi everyone, my first post to say hello to fellow Vulcan fans.

Im from Chesterfield and its nice to know that shes based about 30 mins from where I live. 

Saw her today in Scarborough and I never fail to get goosebumps when I see her and even more when I hear those fantastic engines.
