558s Airframe
« on: March 11, 2013, 01:31:49 PM »
The following was posted on FB yesterday lunch time -

Great news on the airframe – all the test results are now back and she is in magnificent condition with just a few minor non-structural items to address. The technical team is now refitting the crew and engine safety equipment, including the oxygen bottles shown in the captioned photographs just posted. She should be ready for the first check flight in April.

That's good to know but I can't see anything on the home page about it [and I have checked with a couple of others in case I need spec savers] so I'm just wondering why the powers that be see fit to post on FB but not on their own website? unless I've have missed it of course and in that case I profoundly apologise I would have thought all and any good news would be welcome so supporters know it's only money or the lack of that could stop her flying and nothing technical with the airframe.

But it does lead me to ask if the management doesn't consider their own website worthy why should anyone else?

Yes - I think it was posted there as a morale booster on that medium. I do get "alarmed" when a host post suddenly appears complete with numerous comments  and likes before it appears on my PC. I am sure there must be some rational reason.
