Indeed.  I wonder if we can get an interview on Drive too.  A lot more people will be listening then.

Letter sent & Fingers Crossed

PS

Well Well things are moving on the BBC South today programme :D  :D  I sent a email to them telling them about the plight of XH558 etc at lunch time (China time) and this evening (my time) I phoned my wife and she told me the BBC wanted to talked to me to get the facts correct before they do the article.

I phoned the South today Team and the person who wanted to speak to me was not there, the lady said "They were very interested and they was going to do a spot on XH558. Because they wanted to contact me I told them they should be really talking to Dr P and to contact Vulcan to the Sky office. ;)  ;) because of the time difference in contacting me.

I have telephoned Michael Trotter up and gave him the heads up and to get in touch with the BBC South-today team, we might just get a radio broadcast or a TV spot who knows????? :roll:  :roll: Fingers Crossed I hope it comes off.

We can do this keep the faith, the Fat lady has a sore throat so...... :lol:  :lol:

So Johnri you suggested, in my lunch hour I did what you asked.

I sent them an E-Mail yesterday outlining the situation and 558's association with the South.Also suggesting they get in touch with Dr P

So hopefully combined efforts will succeed in getting a bit of viewing time.

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.

I emailed BBC Points West last week to see if they can run the story.  They cover RAF Lyneham and Filton amongst others so there's interest here.  Just sent a follow up with the latest newsletter and Mags' sunsetting picture (hope that was ok?).  Let's hope they pick up on it too.

Yes fingers crossed John ;)  ;) , it seems we have the South well covered with a passion for XH558  who wants her in the air in 2011, along with many more people in the UK who share the same passion :D  :D

I have contacted Lesley Dolphin of BBC Radio Suffolk, who has  been very supportive since she saw '558 at Lowestoft.
I suggested that Dr.P would be happy to give an interview or, if she really wants to go 'down market', I would.  :lol:

558 based at Lynham................. :o

Is that temporary or has the trust negotiated a deal with MOD :?:

That would not meet the requirements set by the HLF for the grant if that is the case :o

Why is it taking sooooooooooooooooooooooooo long to decide where her new home is going to be.......... :x  :x  :x

Over 50,000 members and almost 600 on line at this moment.  :o

Just posted Mag's Sunset cartoon.

Do you think that a shortage of money might have some bearing on that question?  ;)

We know '558 is based at Lyneham for the Winter, just as she was based at Brize Norton for the Summer.

As for a new home, it's hardly a minor decision to make is it? All sorts of plans coupled with it, not just a hangar and runway, although those 2 items aren't exactly abundant for an aircraft of '558's size.

Then, as Landyman quite rightly points out, there is the money factor. According to the various published piecharts, a goodly chunk of the Trust's structured debt relates to '558's previous hangarage - unless the Trust buys an airfield, they need to enter into a commercial arrangement with an existing facility and they will undoubtedly need to be confident that they will be paid and that the Trust has some financial stability.
