Evening Bill. Saw you yesterday when you were over at the Bluebird Cafe with a couple of divers and a tape measure! Was speculating that you were there to measure up for Bluebird being able to get down the ramp and into the lake. I was going to come over and talk with you but you were busy as we left in conversation with the Lake District National Park chap. So, was that what you were on with yesterday? Have been following all the work you have been doing to Bluebird. It is all excellent stuff. As a young (8 years old) man I was desperate for my father to take me over to Coniston to watch Campbell on one of his runs. Sadly it never happened. Best wishes

Well done, Bill and team. Bluebird K7 first came to my attention when as an 8-year old kid, I saw Donald Campbell's final on BBC 'Nationwide'. They cut back to the studio to show a distinguished gent with tears in his eyes - Leo Villa, chief mechanic to both Donald and his father, Sir Malcolm.
To see such an iconic boat rescued, and then return to her former glory by you all has been one of the highlights of the summer.
My g/f' hopes to take me on a walking holiday in the 2019. If plan to have K7 running again around that time, I'd love to see her in the flesh, streaking across the water.

Thanks for rekindling a 70's childhood memory. 😊

Dear Bluebird Project,

I am a producer working on a National Geographic underwater archaeology series called 'Drain the Oceans'. I would love to speak with you about your work on the Bluebird recovery and restoration, with regards to a new episode we are producing.

If you would be happy to discuss, please send me an email and I would be delighted to provide further details.

Look forward to hearing from you!

All best wishes,

I've been following the project for 10 years now, and just saw the video of the The Bluebird running again.
The respect and dedication to honor Donald Campbell's memory has been an inspiration for me.
Congratulations to you all.

Wonderful to see Bluebird running again - well done to all of the team. My father (Stanley Cain) was refueller for Bluebird at Coniston in the 50's and 60's when working for Mobil Oil Company and I had the privilege of meeting Donald and the team when I went with him on one record attempt (can't remember which year, I was quite young!!!). Naturally Donald, the family and Bluebird have been close to the hearts of my family over the years since Donald's tragic accident and it is wonderful to see Bluebird running again. Best wishes for the future and I look forward to watching 'what next'.

I enjoyed a visit to Loch Fad for the Monday of the second week of testing. To see, hear (and smell!) Bluebird in action was a truly moving experience. Well done to all involved, a fantastic achievement. I wish Bluebird and all involved all the best for the future, and I hope that I will get the chance to witness Bluebird in action again very soon.

Bluebird

Donald Campbell lost his life today
When Bluebird crashed into a wall of spray

His record attempt was not in vain
As man and machine did Coniston claim

No waving of flags or hall of fame
Just 34 years in solitary shame

Rescued from her watery grave
A Titan of Britain's golden age

Pulled from the depths to be reborn
This Bird of blue all battered and torn

Patiently restored to her former glory
Adds another chapter to a remarkable story

Like a phoenix from a time gone by
That could draw a tear to ones eye

A wish that Coniston will surely make
Is the return of the Lady of the Lake.

Donald Campbell
( 1921 - 1967 )

Congratulations to all the team who brought Bluebird back to life, it certainly inspired me, hope you like it.

YES! Just saw the video on YouTube! Hope it wasn't leaked early (no pun intended). Such great news after all these years. Congratulations gang... YOU DID IT! (I can't wait to hear those words spoken about my finished and flying RV-8!)
