Maybe VTTS run another appeal campaign and receive donations that enable them to buy their own stake in the hangar? More control, less rent to pay out.
I never ever understood why this wasn't 'plan A' and why this project wasn't kicked off while XH558 was still flying.
At least the trust are consistent in that every release of information raises more questions than it answers..
What would 'owning' this hangar mean for the longer term ETNA vision? Are the trust planning to develop a portfolio of properties around the Doncaster site?
Or is the long term plan now to establish themselves at the sewage works site? If the 'educational ETNA purpose for XH558 is no longer the plan, presumably, the trust has now conceded that they're going to have to develop a museum. In which case, is the Sewage works site practical & big enough to host a viable museum?
Its almost as if the plan changes with the wind.
Assuming there is a plan.
