So training a volunteer ground crew to be able to conduct ground runs, carrying out multiple ground runs, operating a popular retail outlet at a busy shopping centre, numerous events around the country at both air shows and other events organised by the trust and others, and more that I could name. But other than all of that, what have they done?
The question was - ‘what have they actually ACHIEVED for the millions donated?’
Not - ‘what have they actually DONE to keep a decent wage coming in for a handful of Trust members?’
If you read back through the newsletters they have promised the ‘People’ so much, taxi runs, hanger, public access, Etna etc etc
And what have the ‘People’ got in return? 558 stuck outside for months with no access and a dead Canberra. It’s well over 2 years now since the debacle of the final flight and it would interesting to see exactly how much money has been donated by the public to the Trust and exactly where it has all gone.
So, back to that question- can anyone point out anything meaningful that they’ve actually ACHIEVED for the millions donated?
