A possible donor to the cause???

Postby Sploosher » Tue Jul 24, 2012 9:54 pm

Whilst I was getting in the car to come tonight, someone very high up at work passed by and noticed the 2 Vulcan stickers in the rear window and stopped and asked me about 558......... ;)

Anyway, to cut a long story short, this guy has a boat worth £2,500,000, a £120,000 Merc, and a few properties scattered around the world, and he gave me an indication that he may make a contribution to keep her flying ;)

If anything comes of our `little chat`, then watch this space as they say............... :D

Pat, I could reply to that but would only alienate you, I'd rather have you on here making your statements! ;)
I'll just say that I presume you meant PEDANTRY! ;)

Oh while we are on the subject of poor spelling, why do so many aviation enthusiasts use the incorrect spelling of HANGAR? :-o

HangErs are for shirts! ;)
