And also a DC.3 suspended from the ceiling ...

Indeed, but showing unrealistic illustrations will spark a few doubts in the minds of those who enjoy seizing on these sort of things. May the Canberra on the hangar floor (or is it a centre?) would project a better idea of what it will be like.

Would like to see '607 saved from the weather though.

People like that are best ignored.

The Trust have come in for a lot of nasty comments recently and not for the first time because supporters feel they are being ignored. Dr Ps recent podcast just like last time he did one quelled a lot of that shouting. Ignoring those who make the noise just makes them shout louder.

I'm saying supporters should ignore them, not the Trust, although even they ignore the more outrageous comments.

We worry about that come the last week of March if there is still a gap.

Plan was to be at 50% by the end of February, so we are well ahead...  need to keep pushing..

Fridays newsletter give a clue - "You can help them survive until the time comes for them to emerge once again."  With that sentiment repeated in other words further down.  'Survive', note, not 'keep them secure'.  The implication being that if the money isn't raised they will not survive.

Still no news letters being received here (apart from when Fonseca forwards them on to me)

Talk about forgotten as soon as you walk out of the door...

Hi Sam,

PM me your email address (where you want them) and I'll check the delivery system.

I assume your Vulcan one is no longer valid?

Actually Ian is correct.

The vulcan e-mail is no longer valid.

In order to save money (I think the subscription to outlook costs about £25) the trust has removed all of the "vulcan to the sky.org" and "TVOC.co.uk" e-mail addresses.

A bit of shame really as there were a lot of contacts in there that I had made over the six years I worked for the trust.

There was also a lot of historical information which has now been lost - very much in the same way as when the various incarnations of the forums are dismantled.

Still I guess every penny counts.
