Dr P was interviewed on Solent this morning at about 7:15  :) .

Apparently it's also been an item in the 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 and 12:00 news.  Thank you Radio Solent!

Just listened to it and it's not anything we don't already know. Shame the presenter called him Dr Robert Fleming  :shock:

On the other hand , it's probably something that the majority of listeners didn't know !  :o  ;)

On a different note .......
No interest whatsoever from the rags in Wales ........something to do with the fact that '558 hasn't been anywhere near here since the Vulcans were withdrawn from RAF service !! { And with a population of over 3 million , that's potentially a lot of supporters - or at least donators - being missed }
{ ** Hint..... the "Wales National Airshow" in Swansea is back for 2011 -- no dates yet , but it's usually been the same weekend as Yeovilton Airshow.......Hint ** }

Just got home and picked up this E-mail from Head of Planning Kim Michaels, who set the ball rolling with todays coverage on Solent...

---------------------------

Hi Mike,
 
All sorted and it [the Vulcan] was one of our top stories today.  
 
I believe TV have picked up the story too.  
 
Please do keep me up to date with developments as we'd love to follow the story as our audience love the Vulcan.
 
Regards Kim

-----------------------------

Hmm, maybe 558 will pop up on South Today this evening, which would be fab  :D .

South Today did ask for stories this evening.

Sally Taylor asked for items of local interest. So lots of requests for coverage of 558's plight with connections to the Bournemouth, Shoreham, Dunsfold and Goodwood displays. Not to mention that Robert Pleming and the one and only Sad Sam Evans, are local residents.

Contact details are:-

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

Gully ;
{ Ref. your posting on Iconic }......Dr. Pleming didn't give any specific details of funding / deadlines , but Shelagh Fogarty quoted "£250k by Sunday" at the start of the interview.
