excellent - thanks Mayfly :D

almost a shame that MW wasn't at Waddo - 607 is 'his' Vulcan after all! :(

superb to see the cameras there though - we need all the media coverage we can get!

I was at Newark and got a couple of pics. There were around 25 supporters there too. Steve let me know that by 20:00 hrs they had raised 50k so not bad. Shame no-one from tvoc was sat under the Vulcan at Newark with membership forms or merchandise though!! :o)

I have never seen the legendary DT without a flying suit on, I thought he even slept in one. Anyhow, I'll try to put some pics on here from Newark when I work out how to do it.
