    The Vulcan project is in dire need of funds, please go onto their web site and donate some money to help keep this important part of British history flying.

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I live in Lincoln and constantly get hounded by locals and the Lincolnshire Echo for donations for this plane.They spent a million or so in donations last year ready for the waddington air show(which tends to block the road to my house for 2 days!)Then when people finally got there it was grounded because it didnt get its MOT in time.
    It's a shame but i think this time it wont make it.
    Awesome bit of kit though.

    It has to make it, it cannot be allowed to fail-too much has gone into making her airworthy to let it go now. If it fails it just sums up what a weak willed useless nation we are!

    They have had a good deal of public donations but I have seen too many articles about financial and project mis-management to put in any of my hard earned cash.

    Its a pity G. Brown wont stump up some money! It'll be a real shame if she is grounded.

    XH should have been taken by the BBMF when she left active service.

    Perhaps some of the money we're throwing at Greece could be used for this so we can preserve our heritage rather than everyone elses

    There are a great many many other areas where we throw money at other countries instead of thinking about ourselves, and still everyone else hates us-but they all want to come and live here and claim benefits, and we let them
