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!!

Along with every other negative comment - seems to have hit a nerve?  >:D

Just had a look at the names under the wing thingy and the amount available has jumped up by 500 from yesterday!!!!!!
Must have realised they could sell out before 1st Oct so upped the amount up for grabs!!

As Sam says:


That should keep the webstore manager, his assistant, the admin manager, her assistant, the remote stock sales manager, his assistant, the admin manager at Doncaster, his assistant and the Engineering director plus the crop of consultants and contractors that are still klinging on in tea and biscuits for a few weeks.

I think it could be months now Sam......................... >:(

For clarity, I'll not be visiting this forum in future.

Many thanks.
Ian

Thanks for your reply Ian, it speaks volumes to me - 'teddy' and 'cot' come to mind..........!

Mikes questions are reasonable, valid and what most of we 'little people' are wanting answers for.
Genuine answers that is, not Politicspeak which we have endured in the newsletters from a small bunch of people telling us it's ok when it obviously isn't!

Eddief, great to see you back on here but could you help please?

We are all concerned with the slow motion car crash that is happening to 558 (aka the 'Peoples Aircraft') and to see her dumped in the middle of a sewage farm just staggers belief.

A few questions.

1.Why was the Club Committee excluded from the final flight ?
2.Who is currently employed or receiving remuneration of any sort from Trust funds ?
3.How much is the current wage bill including expenses and retainer fees etc ?
4.How cost effective are the current batch of Air Show attendances by the Trust Trailer after deducting costs ?
5.What are the current cash reserves of the Trust ?

Regards

Mike

Very valid questions Mike - I wonder if they'll get answered today? Or ever?

Waiting with baited breath............................. ::)

Is there anybody out there?? We is waiting!!

If you'd have asked me that 2 years ago it would have been a 'No' without much thought.

Now it's a definite 'Yes' because anything is better than the debacle that is going on in front of our very eyes  :'(

The present situation is absolute sacrilege, it's scandalous that 558 and 163 are parked where they are - proof that the Trust are right in the sh1te!

I agree with Sickbag Andy in that I would pay good money to help pay to get her out, whether by road or air.  I'm past caring where - just as long as she's loved and looked after and not used as a Cash Cow to pay a handful of people's wages.

Absolutely DISGUSTED at the Trust's attitude towards 558 AND her loyal supporters.......

So, if the USA was her passport out of this sh1thole then I would be behind it 100%.

Ian

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??

I thank you for you coment Mike,  I am sorry for new, but follow sometime.  I hope not problem.  I as well follow site "UKAR". It and me will laugh out loud. You as well?

I think "Sad Sam", some story to tell - yes?

I no wish to offend, is not welcome here?

I'm no expert, but is it really just a "stamp" that certifies work on aircraft?

I thought there must be more oversight than that, I hope there is - otherwise I might have to rethink the idea of the first holiday abroad in ages!

Surely, aircraft workers have to be supervised by a competent person.  That competent person, surely has to be authorised by an authorising body, who is regulated by the CAA?  Please tell me that someone can't just "forge" signatures and use someone else's stamp :-[

Or was was just a weekends worth of beer talking, because that seems quite a serious accusation?

Blimey Paramania!! Don't mean to offend either but this is only your fifth post and it's astounding how your use of English grammar has improved over your previous posts...........................!!
