Or you could call it the "Tom Dick & Harry Forum"  :lol:  :lol:   only kidding lads ;)  ;)  ;)

Your views make good reading and some good points always come out of a good banter or exchange of views :D  :D

That is why on the ship, in the Recreation room, where we meet Football, Politics & religion are banned (Too many arguements) :shock:  :shock:  :lol:  :lol:

My North south comments are partly tongue in cheek. Also I accept that it's the organisers not paying as well. Southport only came in late 2 years ago after a nudge financially and last year only paid for one day - much to the annoyance of the punters who turned up Saturday.

As for private viewings, the Lyneham tours over the winter were members only and gave pretty good access.

That's ok, no offence taken.  After all, we 'softie' southerners know that northerners are well balanced people.  You have a chip on both shoulders.....   :twisted:

Just had a thought - no idea if it is do-able but here goes...................

What about an 'aerial scramble' where her ladyship visits all the remaining Vulcans around the country within a given time period (maybe not the 24hrs of the original "scramble" though!) doing a flypast / mini-display.  That should allow pretty good geographical coverage with minimal wear and tear (if she doesn't need to land more than once or twice on the trip).  If a nominal charge (say £10 per person) for viewing is made at each site, coupled with volunteers rattling collection buckets then it might even be self-funding?  It should certainly get some good press coverage which could help raise the profile and, maybe, re-invigorate the fund-raising efforts as the season draws to a close.

Like I say, this may be pie-in-the-sky but thought I'd put the idea out there if only to get it shot down!

Any thoughts?

Dave.

With all the saved FI and Engine hours from the scrubbed flights at the weekend I suppose it could be do-able!
However it takes two to tango as they say and getting the Trust onboard might be the show stopper.

Would definately provide some never to be repeated photo ops, and lots of possible "local news" angles.

The guys looking after said airframes I am sure would have some "grit in the eyes" moments. :D

Why not expand that idea to cover any ex-Vulcan bases ??
{ OK......I'm biased & have an ulterior motive --- it's the only way we'll ever get to see XH558 in Wales again !!  ;)  }
