Aviation Waffle / VULCAN Magazines
« Last post by AdrianChallinor on January 07, 2018, 02:43:47 PM »
Greetings.

My late father was a member of VTTS and donated quite a bit of money to the project.

I have 21 copies of the VULCAN magazine in pristine condition, a Battle of Britain Flight memorial magazine, and a Haynes manual of the Vulcan. These are free to a good home.

Please message me, or get in touch by email or phone (07860-290-883) to request these.

I saw rumours of this happening a few weeks ago. No find no fee! either confident of success or a make or  break bet?

Good luck to them, I will be following the search.

 Interesting drone over the rain clouds - Antonov AN26 of Vulkan Air on it's way from Birmingham to Gdansk at 17000 feet, not seen but heard as one could get eye damage looking up into this lot.

Thanks Dee, Yes now we have the registration sorted and we have an FAA licence engineer on-board we can make a start on the engineering (FAA regs stipulate we need an authorized mechanic to work on a FAA registered airframe)

As you said every little helps.

Happy New year.

Merry Christmas Everybody.

Our website is now up and running  ;D

https://www.savetheskymaster.org/

Fairly basic at the moment with an overview of the project, a few pictures, our very nice promotional video and a membership form.

Very soon (once we get payment methods sorted out) we will get a webstore sorted - it's quite frustrating to be sitting on over £10k of stock and not having a way to sell it!

There will also be some history pages detailing the aircraft's life in the U.S. Navy and Marines.

We've been busy over the last month.  We now have a container at North Weald so we have somewhere to store the stock and ground equipment.  We moved all the stock from Milton Keynes and Swansea.

In the last week we have managed to complete the paperwork to transfer the registration to the society.

Our current fundraising campaign has now reached £160 with a bit of luck it will gain a bit more momentum after Christmas.

In the New Year the plan is to get the "Spare" engine out of the cabin and get it into Weald Aviations workshop, they will strip it and assess weather it can be returned to service.  We now have a quote from them for the rebuild of our six engines so we need to start raising some funds to pay for that work - the assessment of the "Spare" along with an external survey of the four fitted engines will cost us £1,900.

There is an open air market held at North Weald on Saturday and Bank Holiday Mondays and we plan to run a stall there as an outlet for our stock and to help raise awareness of the project.

There should be another news letter out at the end of January.
