Excellent - I Facebooked him in the quest for cash the time before last we were short of dosh. He never replied but obviously is aware and someone has got him involved.

She is, after all, a great BRITISH treasure!

Just browsing on Fighter Control and noticed someone posted this yesterday in their Vulcan thread.

Look out for news on a large donation made today from a famous individual

Anything we should know about?  ;)

I guess all will become clearer in the next newsletter (and no - I don't know anything at all about it, just a hunch that this would all make a good article for Friday..?)

Either way, even if someone had made a donation (and again, I honestly don't know one way or the other) it would almost certainly be something kept private between themself & the Trust?

Blimey, good news during an appeal??  Anyone would think 558 was airworthy and ready to go, she had a home that wasn't closing and everything bar the immediate cashflow was looking pretty healthy!  Wait a minute..... ;-)

Fingers crossed for this, and for a good showing on Sunday.  My favourite aircraft at a show with my favourite brewery providing a beer tent.  :-) :-)

Government.  If you think the problems they create are bad, you should see their solutions.

So am I right in assuming that if this is to be her abode for a while there has to be CAA approval of the hangar set up again?
