That would be for Taff, Sam & any of the others to decide, given that the accusation was aimed at them.

All well and good slagging off DanO', but it still doesn't answer the accusation regarding 'silicagate' though.

Whilst somewhat off topic.....

A serious accusation regarding the silica bag incident has been posted on UKAR by someone who calls himself 'bernarde'.
Given that there are those on here ( including Sam, unless I'm mistaken ) who've said they don't frequent that forum, I feel it should be posted on here :
Quote
VTTS will never give any information out on the silica incident as it was covered up as the person who removed them (or not) shouldn't have been anywhere near the aircraft while preparing for a sortie. Needless to say they remained employed by the trust but in a "IT" role. The engineers got the blame who we're not even on-site due to being stuck in traffic.

With the few of us left on this forum I actually doubted we'd get that comment.

The Royal Air Force has seventy plus strike aircraft, with over one hundred other strike aircraft being "available", so little imagination needed to assess the chances of achieving the numbers - the organization is another matter. There are over one hundred and fifty Hawks, then with transport and helicopters that gives us the possibility of "one hundred", and don't forget the Red Arrows can put up at least twelve.
Knock off the ones which are unavailable due to being deployed overseas, on task/standby, down for maintenance, or not allowed to fly over London.....how many does that leave....?

If we're lucky they'll do the same formation  on the Friday at RIAT.
Not holding my breath on that, though.

I know some of you don't like UKAR, but you may be interested in reading some of the recent posts on there ( last page - page 58 )

Remember, though, it's not just Moderators who can remove posts....and if someone other than a Mod removes them, they won't show up as having been moderated.

And on a different note....

No worries.
If I'm unsure, I check the SWAG website ( http://www.southwalesaviationgroup.co.uk/ ) as they're usually up to date on daily movements.

Are you sure about that?
It's still there as far as I know,  as is G-BWGL, which arrived just over a week earlier ( both are at HAS for maintenance )
Granted I may have missed it, but I haven't heard it working St Athan or Cardiff since it arrived - the only ex-Mil that have done air-tests then departed recently are JPs & L-29s
SWAG also hasn't reported it as having departed.

Maybe hire them to find out on a 'No find, No fee' basis as well ;D

That's exactly what they've done.
Used to be called Lloyds Open Charter in the maritime world, don't know what the aviation equivalent is ( unless, of course, they're operating under the maritime system )

As I posted on UKAR, with regards the 'Founding Guardians'....

Quote
I saw the following ( from May this year)...
There were somewhere around 2,200 Club Members who joined the 'FG' scheme when the VTTS Club was binned -- that's less than half the people who were Club Members at the time.
Some have left since then, others on the Forum are saying they'll not be renewing their membership.
If the membership's still £21, that's a total income of just over £46k ...... not a lot compared to what the Club Membership and the various fundraising schemes & Club shop used to bring in.
You could say that it probably pays less than 2 peoples' wages. >:D

Happy to be corrected on those figures if anyone's got more accurate ones.

And no, unless they suddenly find another mystery benefactor I don't see it happening.

Andy;
I couldn't find anything either, until 'Microlightdriver' pointed out that the 'Forum' button on the horizontal row ( between 'History/Articles' & 'How to help' ) is labelled incorrectly !
It actually takes you to what used to be the 'Club' page & simply states the following :
