Recommended Posts

Just spotted this on Facebook:

And a questionnaire they have put out

Ive filled out the questionnaire. Could be a good idea, but i wonder where funds would come from to undertake this?

 

Also your links to Facebook are all mobile, meaning on pc they come out bizzare - to make them back to normal just delete the "https://m." bit off the front so its just a "facebook.com/xxxxxx" link.

 

An ideal place for large transport aircraft to find a home.

Apologies, but when I see a survey that can't even spell there (*their) correctly it sets a level of expectation to me and I'd question the capability behind such an endeavour. I do hope, of course, I am quite mistaken.

Agreed. Excellent idea but, I wonder if any enthusiasm for such a project might wane when the thorny issue of paying for it arises.

I cannot see the MOD funding it. They are too busy wasting our money on hugely expensive vanity projects.

If I were cynical, I'd suggest years of wrangling over who was going to pay for it, to the extent of everybody losing interest and, the whole issue being dropped

That seems to be the British way. Masses of enthusiasm for the concept but, somewhat less enthusiasm when it comes to paying for it.

 Cynicism aside, I have completed the questionnaire. I think the best site would be on base. Be great for giving a chance to also view airfield operations.

A great idea in principle but possibly a few years too late. Had this museum been conceived back in around 2013, it might have been possible to gather together examples of some of the RAF 'heavies' that were then leaving service - VC10, Tristar, C130K etc. Not sure what types they would attract now even if the dream became a reality.

Great idea, let's hope it's a success! With the RAF seemingly getting smaller by the month and showing little inclination to preserve its more recent heritage, there need to be as many of these museums as possible.
