Well someone took it down without having the common decency to inform me of the reason.

If that person has the guts, put it back so that those that care can see and then their own judgements and comments.  OR tell me why I was so out of whack?

Ah, maybe I mentioned the TAFF word????

Taff, in the open, I expected better of you and, I suppose, do most of the remaining supporters either logging or just lurking and listening.

You were once a legend but now..... loyalties?......

How many minutes until this is taken down, comrades?

This is not personal but I fail to square what he is doing with the "volunteers" for the greater good of the Trust

But I've already heard from others that the airport will NOT allow 558 to use the runway i.e. Fast Taxy

Anyone care to correct this view?

I don't know what you are trying to say but I am not a moderator, however I do lurk to see what is written on the forum.

The new team of volunteers are doing an excellent job and they do what I ask, so if any of you have any issues in the way I look after 558 'sorry', its the best I can do!  As for Sam's comments they are not all factually correct and yes I use an adjustable spanner, in fact all of the team did at certain times whilst she was flying (didn't seem to do any harm then).

The aircraft is in good condition and we carried out this years servicing in all conditions and to finish off todays ground runs went well including the functional check of the AAPP.

2 Excel are in the process of setting up their own 145 Maintenance Organisation in the Hangar, which will hopefully be operational in January and need the space.

The trust is considering the operation of other loaned aircraft next year?  Who is going to look after these loaned aircraft?  There are no engineers left in the employment of the trust.  I understand that all of my authorisations have been kept up to date and I was forced to leave my stamp behind when I was sacked from the company.  I shall be very annoyed if I find out that my authorisations and signature are being used to certify work which I have not carried out.


Now now Samual what are you trying to insinuate, you'll have the Quality Police after me! 

As far as I remember WE were made redundant and not sacked and as for your auths, they are not up to date.  Finally why do I need to use your stamp, when I can stamp everything myself

Well its a sad day for me and Jacqui, Vulcan Scrubbers, we were both so proud to have had the Honour to have been all over 558 and to get to know all the wonderful Engineers.. Up on the wings with a bucket and mop scrubbing her wings and making her shine for all the shows she graced.
At least we can say we were both on the last flight..Just a shame the new volunteers or (Jonny come latelys) have decided to remove our beloved Graffiti..

Still whatever..We have the photo's and memories..


Thankyou Sam for giving us the pleasure of cleaning her!!!


Hi Dee

I'm surprised you would think I would allow that bit of art to be removed off the aircraft!

Yes I have had the volunteers who were helping me over the winter maintenance clean the aircraft, however one patch was 'out of bounds'

I had and still do appreciate the work you scrubbers have done over the past and have taken a picture yesterday during the run.

Take care and hope to see you again sometime

Taff  ;D

Unfortunately the upload folder is full so I can't post the picture!!  Admin please can you sort this out or if you would like to pm me Dee with your email I will sent it to you.

The oil change is because we have just fitted a new engine and its normal to run the engine to check it is ok and then drain and flush the oil. That way when it come to flying it has clean oil and been and tested. As for the testing that is covered by servicing procedures and we will check the idle, maximum along with all the pressures and system functions.

Middle - one used in the early 90's
Bottom left - VA used in the 90's

Been outside today and carried out a couple of functional and leak checks just outside the hangar.  558 is now down the Engine Running Pan ready for full Engine Runs post winter maintenance.

185 – F2988’s (Maintenance Cards) - 80%
13 – CLR Work Cards - 50%
55 – Servicing Procedures (set methods for either examining or testing systems/components) -60%
26 – Current Rectification Work Cards - 70%

These are approx %, as other cards and tests are being raised as and when required.
