    Vulcan Meet

    I think your right Jonathan,fate may be warning you. I believe that 558 won't be ready for the Falklands flypast. The current status is: Airframe Many of the systems are being rebuilt with the Oxygen system actually having oxygen in it, there

    Vulcan Meet

    I would like to put forward the event to meet up at Bruntingthorpe on the 27th of May for their Cold War Jets Open Day. I have spoken to the organiser who have said that they normally have 5000 people on the day, and are willing to put our cars on Hard Ground next to the Lightning (plane) sheds They should have plane taxiing on the runway every 30 minutes from 10:00 to 16:00 and have food vans there. As this is being organised by the TVOC (the Vulcan Operating Company), they are not being paid any of the entrance fees so have asked if we minded put our cars on show with some XH558 bucket

    The car display at the airshow seems so successful that Fairford are now doing the same. We have a date at last, just what your looking for so details have been posted to Bibs and will be announced. As this is at Bruntingthorpe and the Vulcan is in pieces, they are not sure if it will be appearing, but considering the first display flight is at the Falklands Fly Past on June 17th, it should be close, just waiting for the organiser to confirm or deny.

    Just a quick note to say that this is starting to move forward and an event should be identified within the next week or two. As yet I am thrashing out the details to make sure its a day to remember for any aircraft enthusiast.

    Hi Guys, as progress on the restoration of XH558 progress they have the following: I was interested in seeing if anybody else wanted to attend so we could meet up as a group. Maurice Vulcan Visitors Invitation Phase 2 Tuesday, December 19, 2006 - XH558 at Bruntingthorpe You know all about XH558 her history and her future, now is your chance to widen that knowledge and place her and the Vforce into context with a presentation
  9. From the video showing the side profile, lloks alot like an Aston Marton (not sure who owns them). I know which make I would choose.
  10. Here is an article on the Mustang redesign by Guigiaro MSN Article I quite like the new design and the flips doors

    Good to hear from you Peter, it was a bloody hot day, my picture still has pride of place in the Sitting Room. The future pilots of XH558 are using the Vulcan at Wellesbourne for training at the moment. Just to let you know I am chasing this with the Vulcan guys, seems everybody has been off with flu lately so will try to get some firm details at the beginning of Dec. As for inviting other Car Clubs - I would appreciatte any help from other marquees for it, to it become a Supercar day with as many different makes as possible Maurice

    LOL Its a pity the NEMG is so far Esst. The 10/12 would of been a good date to put this event in the morning and then the NEMG 1st anniversary in the afternoon
  13. I think, when I did mine. I used a piece of wood(maybe even the handle of a hammer) to apply pressure in the correct direction and then gently tapped it with another hammer on the other side. I was lying under the car but wasn't too much of a bugger to come off.

    Sorry, Monday and Thursdays are out as they are not open for visits those day.

    They require a week day for the talk as they do not have the presenters available on the weekends. I think a Friday afternoon would be fine. Jonathan indicated that it would be great to do it this year which I think would be a good idea. We would need a few members to come if the are to open the Museum for us. If the Sunday is better, then we can still access the Vulcan and the museum but we would loose the talk, which I think would be a pity. Maurice
