Tina was carefully towed in to the Manheim Car Auction hangar at Bruntingthorpe by Dave Walton and our engineering team wing walkers on Friday 23rd March. She had a roof over her head for one night only to form the back drop for the Vulcan to the Sky Trust’s event on the Saturday to commemorate the last RAF flight of Vulcan XH558. Then back out in the cold!!! Obliging lady – anything to help with Roy as guardian!! Lots of hard prep work and an exhausting day – but the favourable comments from the Vulcan brethren were well received.
Work is well in hand preparing Tina for the Open Day on 27th March. Roy and Bill are washing down after the hard winter and the engineering team are well into the maintenance schedule. The event will be centred on the south western end of the runway due to the car storage so the backdrop will be different for photographs. Gates open at 9am and we will be with the aircraft to meet you before the fast runs start at 11am. Our Victor memorabilia will be on sale from our tent in the concessionary area. Hope to see you there.
