I think its important to remember that this magnificent aircraft was flown around the country a little while back, that same country came out to applaud it as the amazing engineering achievement it is. Yet now it seems to have been abandoned... A true tragedy, in every sense of the word.. :( :(

Don't forget the inevitable arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and their aiders and abetters; also the fact that it would be hard to carry out speaking engagements from a prison cell.
'Just goes to show, that when the British put their minds to it they can jolly well overcome all obstacles and achieve anything...'

Now who said that?

Seems to me that all anyone can utter in the face of adversity these days is 'Baaaah'.

There'd undoubtedly be an uproar but whoever did it would get a slap on the wrist, a suspended sentence and become a national hero courtesy of the Sun newspaper. :lol: Oh how I wish I could fly a Vulcan - I'd do it tomorrow.

I don't want to rock the boat too much, and risk of wrath of the VTTS bashing brigade, but they do seem to be progressing plans for a viewing hanger

Also these aircraft were kept outside fo extended periods on fast response - so I'm not worried just yet.

I knew someone who worked on Concorde - they lived outside too - but after the grounding following the Paris accident they had a hell of a job to get them working properly again because the extended period of inactivity had let them get cold in places they'd never been cold and condensation played havoc.
