Both good and bad news today.

The good news: the fight to raise the cash to restore and keep an Avro
Vulcan has reached it's goal and may have enough funds to get it flying
again.

The bad news: Humbrol, the owner of Airfix has gone into administration.
Apart from 70 local jobs, we may lose a local landmark with the potential
loss of the Hawker Hunter(XF509) from outside the factory on Hedon Road in
Hull.

Worried?  Well Wallace and Gromit fans may also out since the factory also
produced the plasticine used to make it!
