Up to date information on 558 display status
« on: August 23, 2010, 02:40:07 PM »
Hi,
As a supporter by monthly standing order and living far away from Bruntingthorpe I have only really got a chance to see her at air displays.  Brize would be possible if supporters were to be allowed to visit.

It would be really useful if a priority could be given to keeping the twitter and scrolling newsfeed really up to date (on Saturday21st  nothing appeared about Bournmouth or Shoreham until the "Sorry display cancelled due to weather" in late afternoon long after the displays were timetabled to have occured.

I know there are numerous demands on peoples time but as a fundraising idea why not commit to providing really up to date info on the status (at least hourly even if it is just to confirm current status) for those that have committed to a monthly donation?  It can be done as often the twitter feed is regularly updated by text message but at other times frustrating hours go by without update at the critical time when air displays are scheduled to happen.

Providing this timely service would show gratitude to the supporters and help them in their decision as to where to travel in order to see X558 flying, and there could be a premium service for supporters (just like on the stock market price websites) - delayed information for free - upto the minute only for subscribers/supporters...

Thanks,
Andy.
