Shocking to see wasnt it Jax!!!

Yes, it was shocking........................ :-[

I’ve seen the pics of her outside but that didn’t prepare me for seeing her from Old Bawtry Road, looked like she was taxiing to the threshold waiting to take off.............

Heartbreaking doesn’t even scratch the surface  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I don't know what the outgoings are now but I do hope that the majority of the money raised by the names under the wing appeal has been put aside for good use to benefit the aircraft rather than all being wasted on needless wages.

Isn’t one of the Trustees registered on here? I’m sure he’d be more than happy to answer this question  ;)

Also VTTS have had over £300,000 donated via the appeal earlier this year and the names on sticky back plastic plus other donations and profits from the webstore, raffle etc - maybe he could let us know where these funds are going to?

I've done what I can only do and stopped funding from my fixed income.

I stopped my monthly donation in Sept 2015, a month before she was grounded, because I didn’t agree with the Trusts retirement plans for her.

No one contacted me to ask why I cancelled the Direct Debit, to say thanks for your support or diddlysquat!!

As ascot5046 says - NFI..............

But I bet they would have been FI if it had been a substantial amount every month  >:(

Edited to add - I now sponsor a ginger tom called Rupert at my local cats home instead!!

So - another aircraft associated with the ‘Trust’ is assigned to sit outside in the winter   >:(

This is all so UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

And still the email newsletter bleats buy this, buy that, give us your money so we can have a good Christmas...................

After all the beautiful, happy times 558 gave us - who could have predicted she would be sat outside in winter with jacks under her ‘arse to stop her tipping up in case of heavy snow...............

Sorry but I just cannot comprehend how the Trust can justify their existence now - where the HELL is all the money going?? Not on these precious aircraft that’s for sure!!!

Absolutely and utterly DISGUSTED  >:( >:( >:( >:(

Surely the money they have aquired thro the latest Names under the wing scheme will go towards the new Hangar??!!! ::) ::)

Today’s the big ‘Online Unveiling’ of the names (whatever that means!!!)

Maybe tonight’s Newsletter will explain in detail where the money is going to? New hanger??? Fat Cats wages??? Flying pigs???

After they’ve taken off the cost of the sticky back ‘plaque-stick’ that is..............!!! >:D

I had the (dubious!) pleasure of accompanying StAthan lecky and his lovely lady wife and I have to agree with his comments re the flying display.
It's a shame some of the statics didn't display especially the Swedish Heritage aircraft - they would have made what was a good first show brilliant.
On the downside we had Grandstand tickets but the car park was at the opposite end and it was a LONG walk! Plus the Grandstand was at the end of the flightline and not in the centre as they normally are, big disappointment  :(
Plenty of room for improvement but I thought it was promising and look forwards to the next one  ;)

Didn't go on the Trusts stand, they won't ever get another penny off me. Good to see all the volunteers taking peoples cash to keep Edmondson, Trotter and Pleming in the life style they are accustomed to  - NOT! >:(
Shame 558 won't see any of it...................

Noticed that the Trust have just upped the amount of 'names under the wing' AGAIN!!!
They've made another 300 available, must be selling well to keep them all in a job...................... >:(

Well said Sam

And thanks for the photos methley, she looks so, so sad...................

I bet I'm not the only one on here who's heartbroken at seeing the reality in that photo  >:(

How the HELL have the Trust let it come to this?? It's WRONG on so many counts..........

I've been shot down in flames on Farcebook by one of the current volunteers who says it's not a sewage farm - it's a 'Water Treatment Plant'! Does it REALLY matter?

Beginning to think maybe 558 IS parked in the right place because this whole debacle STINKS!!
