It would nice if others can follow suit - by getting this message out to local media in thier respective areas.

Email the newsdesks of local papers and radio stations.  This may well be the last oppertunity to get media attention to the cause.

Time is rapidly running out for us (as club members - to help raise the profile and plight of 558)

Just a quick question - does this mean that 558 is the last aircraft flying that is a product of Woodford ?

I think the 146 came out of there and the ATP as well.  Sure there must be a few of those still stooging about (Queens flight/ 32 Sqn have a couple)

Plus the glorious MRA4 (not quite dead yet)

PA474 was built in Chester in mid 1945.  (just checked the BBMF Webpage)

Yep - rather a lot still going. I was thinking it might be a line of attack for local papers here.
