Whatever way I look at it, plastering 558 with stickers is just wrong, and not what any aircraft where there are ambitions of it being the centre of an exhibition should look like.

I bet DT has a few choice words on the whole affair Pam  ;)

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  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Well.....  it's another way of weatherproofing her now she's been dumped outside. >:(

Can't see too many people paying £30 to have their name put in a place they will hardly ever get to see. It's a bit like paying to have your name put on a park bench in the middle of Sherwood Forest IMO.

Like everyone else here I am more than disgusted at the way things have turned out. The old girl never deserved this  >:D

I am sure Mags Doig would have a field day doing a cartoon if she is still about.

Oooh shiny new anniversary fleeces on sale from the Trust today ! FLEECE"D" being the operative word  >:(

Mike

They must think that they will sell like hot cakes being serial numbered. What is the point of selling new attire for an aircraft that is non flying and dumped outside next to a sewage plant.  >:(

How much did this new batch of clothing cost, and where did the money come from ?. Can't believe how much 'old' stock is still available in the web shop

This is like watching a car crash in slow motion and it makes me so angry.


Nail hit firmly on the head there Sam.

I can see this not ending well.  >:(

Both 558 and Canberra kicked out of Hangar 3 to Hangar 1 was bad enough. Now kicked out of that to fester whilst the 'alleged' new hangar is built (Which will probably take the best part of a year - at a guess) is very sad. With no engineers to maintain them - it is likely both air frames will rapidly fall foul to the weather and end up looking very pitiful after a few months.

I just feel so very sorry for all the ground crew that put so many hours into keeping 558 serviceable from the outset, only to see it dumped outside like an old redundant TV set is appalling IMO.

Not much to add to what has already been said in the previous posts........  :(

Without them - the project would never have got off the ground literally. To coin a Churchill phrase - Never was so much owed by so many to so few.

Thanks for everything you have done over all the years. Good luck to you all.

Good luck Sam.

As Fred has already pointed out, distance is the key factor for us down this end of the country.

All seems very quiet on the Shoreham investigation front.

Last I read was that the ejector seat maintenance was very suspect. Police and crash investigators were still waiting to interview him about the tragedy.

On another note.... a recent major cliff slide at Bournemouth is slightly worrying too. It almost took out the Jon Egging memorial on the cliff top. :(

Book / Film / TV Reviews / Re: The stupid "nodding presenter" shot
« on: April 21, 2016, 10:49:21 PM »
Not as bad as people telling said presenter or camera something, and nodding while they are doing so.  Mind you, nothing is as bad as those people who say "Yeah?" at the end of every statement.

And not forgetting those footballer interviews - where every sentence has an '...and errrrr' or a 'welll......' in it.

Crowd lines moved and display heights heightened.... at this rate you will soon need binoculars to watch air shows with. I wonder what effect this will have at seaside air shows with a 1,000+ or so boats in the vicinity ?
