Seen in today's Newsletter.
Last Sunday, Taff and our team of volunteer groundcrew brought XH558’s systems back to life in the final phase of winter maintenance ahead of completing full engine ground-running checks. All was reported to be well, including the recently serviced AAPP reported on last week. The day acted as a refresher course, ready for the groundcrew and tour guide volunteers to begin public access tours with XH558 from next month.
Look out for news on the first public engine ground-run date, with full booking details in a newsletter very soon.

At the moment it's not even a rich persons a/c, just the play thing of a select few (my opinion).

558 will only be able to do ground engine runs and not fast taxi runs as they have no qualified pilots.
Pity they got rid of the professional ground crew.
I will not be able to see or hear the aircraft as I cannot afford to get there.
It is now a rich persons aircraft. (my opinion)

I'm looking forward to working with the development team on the new hangar #excitingtimes
Sorry if my reply is wrong, but I'll wait until I read about it from someone official.

Thank you Methley.
I hadn't seen these images before.
I like the look of this hangar.

This from the newsletter.
"Now that planning permission has been secured, exciting but challenging developments are ahead as we raise the financial backing for the hangar development, but as ever, with the support of an enthusiastic volunteer and supporter base, we remain most positive. We are presently planning 2018 and beyond in the expectation of a very bright future for aviation heritage and engineering inspiration."

Seen this today.
"Vulcan to the Sky Trust spokesman Richard Clarke said the scheme would not be able to move forwards until an investor was in place, and the trust was currently actively looking for that investor.

The trust is also currently raising funds from the public towards the costs.

He said: "We would like to think when planning permission comes forward we could move forward as soon as possible. That is the aspiration and we wanted to start the ball rolling by putting the planning application in..

"We would like to be looking at starting next year, but it is difficult to put a date on it.."

Thought they had got the money for the hangar, so that is why they put in the planning application.

Edited to amend article link.
