558, would be in bits in a scrapyard by now if it wasn't for the volunteers at Bruntingthorpe keeping her alive for so long,


SHE BELONGS AT BRUNTINGTHORPE, END OF!


I could not agree with you more 558 was lucky to go to such a good home at bruntingthorpe when she does eventually retire i would be very happy to see her return to bruntingthorpe. But from 1968 till 1993 waddington was her home and so I will always say that waddington is her home

Sorry to disagree with you, but she was at Scampton at least 1974 to 1978 when I was flying her. She appears in my log book 11 times in that period (albeit sometimes in exotic locations).

I think 558 has a LOT of HOMES! :D
