My company has invested significantly more money in 558 than any other entity.  We love her & want to see the whole story played out to a happy ending.  But I appreciate the journey to that place is beyond the imagination & trust of some - just like the return to flight was I suppose..?  And things happened along the way that did not go to plan - but that's also rather 'normal' in the real world.  Get used to it - life is not a rehearsal: Think fast & do the right thing.

I do not like reading these threads but I rather need to - so I can see what flack might be in waiting & also keep cross-checking my own sense of reality.

I think there is a good chance that the hangar will happen & things will turn for the better (which is why we are still supporting the project) but I honestly can't say that is a certainty. 

But meanwhile, if anybody wants to start throwing toys around at 'names associated with the Vulcan' then how about you bring ME into it.  I'm seriously fed up with watching some decent folk getting kicked about by people who have no idea at all what they really do (and would I be paying for them to do that if I thought they were all just using the cash to prop up their holidays & latest cars - what REALLY!?)  But I can't really speak up on their behalf so at least, if I get a personal attack then I can start punching back.

You're a bit short..

It's all I've got.

Me and the mrs both just watched the "Barrel Roll" ... Both said BS at the same time ..
Our Crews are too Professional to risk their Careers or the Aircraft in that way .. Plus, if they were going to have Done it ..
They'd have done it on the Final Flight with Proper Cameras running , not a Mash-up of Still Images

It happened. There was one video of it that i know of that was subsequently deleted. Really wasn't that impressive. ;D

Both.
Very informative Gregg,thank you for your in depth appraisal of the current situation  ::)

Old Fa%t

I'll expand on it when I've got more time. Some of us work, unlike you retired dwarves that spend their days getting older and rounder.  :-*

I would pay money to assist in this outcome as would many others who have withdrawn financial support since the final flight debacle !

Mike

Ditto what Mike says................

I for one would put in as much time, effort and money as I could and I'm sure loads of other followers of 558 would if there was a chance of getting her out of the cesspit the Trust have dumped her in.

I am past it with listening to anything the Trust have to say, they just write anything they want in the newsletters and expect us to believe it (sadly some people do and cough up yet more cash for the bottomless pit).

The current situation is appalling with 558 and the Canberra dumped outside whilst the Trust are still taking a wage - why are they still on the payroll??
655, 426, the People's Mosquito, the Skymaster - all run by volunteers not taking a penny for themselves!! All monies go to the aircraft and not to line someone's pocket!!

Someone should be made accountable for where all the money has gone and why she's parked outside hidden away and getting soaked.

So, as Mike says, could there be any chance of getting her out of there to somewhere that the 'People' would be allowed to see and support her again??

Nope.

Utter rubbish about Brunty. The runway isn't the greatest but it's suitable for ground running jets. On open days we increase the amount of fire cover we have and the people running the jets are either currently serving members of the raf or are former members. The rest of the volunteers are experienced or supervised etc.

There is, like anywhere, the odd cowboy but for the vast majority of us its done right and proper. Or not at all.

We always, always, check the intakes...
