Life and times of the Avro Vulcan

Postby Wedgy » Fri Feb 13, 2009 10:59 pm

Its been a week or so since I have been on the TVOC forums and even longer since I read the homepage (mostly I read what people paste here).

Found this and thought I would put it here for any non TVOC forum members to view (Im sure they won't mind, all good publicity in the current crisis!)

I enjoyed that, thanks Wedgy. But....where is it being distributed? I hope not just the TVOC site, because as I said before, it is preaching to the converted.

If I recall correctly, this was the presentation Dr. P. gave at the Royal Aeronautical Society some months ago. It was available on the VTST website shortly thereafter, so whilst it may not have been a sticky there or spread around generally, it was released in a timely fashion.

Nice one Wedgy, There was an article in the Telegraph earlier this week which seems to have bought a few more pennies in - it went up £10,000 in one day!

What TVOC really needs is lots of folk putting in a small amount rather than a few folk putting in a large amount.
