Is that right then? The aircraft at 'Brunti' get all their fuel for free?


No.

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

Taff is still in charge, and I’m pretty sure he won’t allow things to slip, why would he? Thought he'd gone to Waddington ( as per Sam's post on the VTTS forum last year ) so wasn't full time with VTST any more....or has that changed? No I don't think that's changed - of course that doesn't mean he...

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

If you get above a certain speed any aircraft will take off without a control input... If you do a bit of reading though, you’ll see that the P1 had to remove is hand from the yoke in order to close the throttles Which begs two questions: 1. Did P1 only have one hand? Even with a steering tiller on...

How many people on here believe, genuinely, this hangar will ever get built? I believe, genuinely, that when it is built your quotes from this thread should be projected on to one of the walls in a very large font size.

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

Actually, "over VTTS' dead body" is about right. The situation needs VTTS to go to the wall. Once that lot are out of the way and no longer involved in any capacity, a true volunteer operation can step in. Fresh faces and fresh ideas would perhaps drum up enough cash for a "one last ...

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

That's a depressing summary Donald. I naively thought the intension was to fast taxi, and the problem was just utter incompetence that nobody thought to check with Robin Hood it was going to be allowed, before stranding 558 there. Even if taxi runs were going to be possible, it would been a poor co...

Doncaster doesn't want 558 taxying on the runway now, so forget when it gets busier. They're concearned about the runway being blocked should the thing break.

It's not pink by the way, hasn't been for quite some time. I never said it did and i never said it wasn't a shade of pink. Wow, you've managed to completely contradict yourself in two posts.

And will you ever get over your brunty obsession? It really can't be healthy. It's no worse than those who still can't get over 558 not going to brunty, and still go on and on about it. It's not pink by the way, hasn't been for quite some time. Are you finally admitting it never wore the pink schem...

Re: Where has XH558 thread gone?

It a stange term to use "winter storage". Kind of suggests being put away safely over winter. But nothing is going to change - do they even have the expertise now to inhibit the engines? I really do hope this doesn't mean it's going to be left dormant outside over winter. Best way to look...

It's business as normal at Brunty. The number of cars is the only unusual thing and the departure of GJD isn't anything to do with the CWJ side of things.

They have said its going to Cosford because they offered hangar space and something to do with the centenary of the RAF etc. Seems fairly clear to me.

You all realise that theres more to Brunty than a giant car park? And that there was aviation related malarky before GJD rocked up? It's hugely amusing to see the rumours and speculation just because a single airframe isn't going to the place. Even linking it to XH558 not going there. Theres a very ...
