    Default Support for Bloody good cause

    The following is a message that everyone involved in UK aviation should read and hopefully fully support. I was at school when the Falklands was on but still remember being on car park duty at the Middle Wallop airshow when one of these beautiful reminders of why Britain is Britain graced us with a fly past with it's bomb doors open.

    "I am contacting you in the hope to drum up some support for a desperate
    campaign, The owner here at vin de Terre is ex RAF and has many friends who
    are working voluntarily towards restoring the Vulcan. The aircraft they have
    is extremely close to finishing and is hoped to be flown for the first time
    in over 13 years on the 31st August. The Vulcan was primarily used in the
    Cold war but wasn't used in anger until the Falklands when it took a key
    role in securing the UK's advance and defence of the islands. The aircraft
    were all decommissioned due to a lack of funding but this dedicated team
    have worked on donations of money, time and parts with the ultimate goal of
    seeing a piece of the UK's military history back in operational status.

    The national lottery have agreed to meet all achieved funds 3 times, the aim
    for us is to raise £350,000 in 4 weeks! Our role in this mission is going to
    be focused around selling Wine which has been specially labelled for the
    cause, and the owner here will donate 100% of the profits to the cause. This
    is more a mission about passion and devotion to the efforts and history of
    the aircraft and the volunteers, we simply want to try as much as possible
    to give them something they deserve so much - to see the aircraft fly...

    We have turned the Vin de Terre offices into a 4 week operations center,
    this money has to be raised. We have funded and created a website for the
    cause - www.savethevulcan.co.uk and we will be selling wine for £10 per bottle with 100% profit going to the cause. We need to tell everyone, general public, businesses, enthusiasts, ex servicemen, and anyone you reach out to, that the cause needs their support. We need this website to be inundated with orders to help save and preserve a piece of natural heritage.
    So many people have worked so hard on this task and we cannot let it fall at
    the last hurdle.

    We know you reach people who care about this aircraft, and people who
    genuinely wish to help, and we hope you can help us put together a rescue
    mission.

    The wine we are supplying can be personalised with the customers name, in
    thanks for their support, at no extra cost!"

    Wine, £10 per bottle for a fantastic cause. Go do it chaps.
