Theft and damage at East Midlands Aeropark

Postby andygolfer » Tue Jun 27, 2017 4:17 pm

You may have seen about this mindless theft and vandalism at the East Midlands Aeropark last weekend when some scumbags decided that just nicking all their funds from their open day wasn't sufficient and went on the totally wreck the shop area. The museum estimate the damage at £5k and have a fundraising page in action to help fund the repairs. Here are links to their FB page and and to a topic about the break in together with a link to the funding page.

FRANCIS: Now, this is the palace in Caesar's Square. Our commando unit will approach from Fish Street, under cover of night, and make our way to the northwestern main drain. If questioned, we are sewage workers on our way to a conference. Reg, our glorious leader and founder of the P.F.J., will be coordinating consultant at the drain head, though he himself will not be taking part in any terrorist action, as he has a bad back.
BRIAN: Aren't you going to come with us? REG: Solidarity, brother. BRIAN: Oh, yes. Solidarity, Reg.
FRANCIS: Once in the sewer, timing will be of the essence. There is a Roman feast later in the evening, so we must move fast, and don't wear your best sandals. Turning left here, we enter the Caesar-Augustus memorial sewer and from there, proceed directly to the hypocaust.

Absolutely disgusting. I'm just trying to figure out why they'd leave the day's takings in a safe, in a hangar, on an un-guarded airfield overnight. :???:

Very sad, especially as I presume everyone there volunteers their time for free :(
