    Default Vulcan XH558 24hr Scramble

    THE VULCAN TO THE SKY SUPPORTERS CLUB
    - issued Wednesday 11th February 2009 in support of Vulcan B2 – XH558

    With the threat of the projects closure by Friday 6th March and an open letter to the press from high profile names, the club is rallying to offer promotional support to the cause of raising £500,000 before the deadline.

    The Club have been major fundraisers in the past, adding over £120,000 of donations to the project
    in the last 12 months alone. We now need the publics help in saving this aircraft for the nation, in the hope
    she can be included in a RAF Memorial Flight, to see out her remaining flying hours, before being placed on static display in a Museum.

    A PLEDGE SCHEME will raise these funds, but we need a way of getting our message out to the wider public.

    THE CLUB ARE THEREFORE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE The 24 hour Vulcan Scramble!

    Taking place on Sunday 22nd February, father and son club members, Robert & Steven Lowe, will be joined by Crew Chief Taff Stone, on a journey to visit all 15 remaining full Vulcan airframes within the U.K.

    Starting in East Fortune near Edinburgh with XM597, the route will take in aircraft at Sunderland, Carlisle, Woodford, Cosford, Wellesbourne, Coventry, Bruntingthorpe, East Midlands Airport, Newark, RAF Waddington, Norwich, Duxford, Hendon and Southend. See: http://tinyurl.com/Vulcan-Scramble for full details and times.

    The projected route will cover over 880 miles, with an estimated travel time of 19 hours + stopovers.

    Club members at each location will help explain the event and our plight to visitors throughout the day. They will be specifically asking people who are willing – to sign
    Pledges to help save the aircraft.

    These will then be entered onto the central database with a running total displayed by
    way of a “graphic totaliser” on the website.

    More details will be available soon on a dedicated Scramble webpage, linked off the main website www.vulcantothesky.com

    Anyone wishing to donate or pledge can do
    so online or by calling: 0116 247 8145.




    XH558 is the only airworthy Vulcan in the world, restored to flight after nearly 15 years at a cost of £7million.
    She now faces grounding forever, unless an additional £500,000 can be raised before 6th March enabling funds for another full air show season. Last year, she appeared in front of over 1.5 million people.

    She inspires immense pride in all who see her. A full education programme is built around her, not only telling the story of the cold war era, but the value of science and technology in inspiring future engineers.

    She was the “mother of concorde” - Can you help save this ICONIC BRITISH AIRCRAFT?
