Thanks for the heads up Curly.
Just read his piece and it is great. It is headed "C'mon, this tired old bird deserves a second chance".
Also, "the Vulcan flew low over my house the other day. No one understood why I was pointing and grabbing my privates".

I did take umbridge at the description of supporters as 'adenoidal and wearing cheap shoes' but that is Clarkson for you. Who cares though if it had the desired effect of getting more support and dosh.

Not sure if you can get on-line to view the column without subscribing to The Times.

Thanks anyway Jeremy, Sir.

Landyman.

I used to be retired then I found a Vulcan.
My travel blog - http://motorhomemoments.wordpress.com (Now with added Vulcan for even better value)

It's a pity we couldn't pass on these positive comments to those so called aircraft enthusiasts who sit behind their desktops and moan, whinge, moan, whinge, moan...................ad infinitum.  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Thanks Speedy, knew I could rely on someone having the necessary software.

Have you finished packing yet?  Weather looks lovely for camping (you'd better take your thermals!)

OK - Nice article in the Fife Courier today re XH558 and the funding situation. Will try to find a link when I have a moment.
Thanks to Cheryl and Craig, the Courier reporters. :D

If anyone else can fire off a letter to the editor of thier local newpapers - please do so ASAP.

Most local newspapers are available to read online, and have a 'Contact Us' Email address.......... hit that or the 'Letters' page' better still just go direct to 'Editor' or 'newsdesk' with Vulcans plight.

(Works for me  :D ... and has done for the last 3 appeals !!)

I E-mailed my 'ally' David Brine at the Southern Daily Echo last week...unfortunately I got an automated out of office reply saying he's on leave until Nomveber.  So I forwarded the same E-mail to the Newsdesk and I haven't heard anything back  :( .

However, there might be something on Julian Clegg's show on Radio Solent tomorrow morning. I had a reply to an E-mail I sent them and they said their press office was going to try and organise an interview. I've no idea what's happening with this now but I'll have to listen in to find out!

Sounds like you are up to be one of "Julians people" Mike. :D

Colin Van Greffen from the Solent Skies museum was trying to set this up for me last year but I always seem to be away when he rings.

I hope it all comes together for you Mike and you pull off as great interview to make people in the South sit up "They have enjoyed her more than others I think" my brother in law saw her while he was playing golf but will not put his hand in his pocket no matter what I tell him re the funding :evil:  :evil:  :evil:
