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!)

I have followed the Bluebird project for many years and have always found it fasinating to watch as she was bought back to life. What a wonderful achievement to finally having her flying along the waters of Bute.

Well done team, its been amazing to follow your story.

Best Wishes

Rob

What an amazing achievement. We holidayed for years at Blawith on Coniston and I told the story of Bluebird many times to my daughter and her friends.
I now run an annual event in Lymm in Cheshire - Lymm Historic Transport Day. We have been enormously successful and have money to invest to bring a top class attraction like the Bluebird to Cheshire for the day. If this in anyway fits in to your timetable we would love to talk to you and make a valuable contribution to your funds.

" ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING ACHIEVEMENT "

It's hard to put into words how I felt when I saw and heard Bluebird in full flight on Loch Fad !!

Took a trip to Bute with my wife Christine on Monday and we were rewarded, along with many excited onlookers, to the sight of Bluebird doing what she was built for.

To say what these guys and girls have achieved is "truly amazing" would be one of the understatements of the century!

Wishing Bill and all the team every success in their future endeavours.

We can only hope that the "officialdom" in the Lake District realise what they have missed out on.

Thanks again for bringing Bluebird to Scotland
Haste ye back !!

Amazing footage of the Bluebird on the water in Bute, I would've loved to have been there. The restoration project is truly incredible! Any plans at all to bring her back to Coniston?
