The team have done an amazing job in restoring Bluebird and I am delighted to have seen the videos of her under power. Would love to have seen this live, but couldn't make it. Will make Coniston though.

Had the great fortune to see 2x double runs on Thursday. Almost beyond belief seeing Bluebird going 'doon the watter' on Bute. An outstanding achievement by Bill & the team in preserving this icon. One question, how do I get my hands on a Bute '18 Bluebird polo shirt?

My wife and I came over to Bute yesterday and had a wonderful day. Not only was the weather amazing, but we spoke to several of the team and watched the two runs. Bluebird looked absolutely amazing and to hear the jet start up only twenty feet away was mind-blowing! Well done to everyone involved and good luck in the future.

Just fabulous👌🏽What you guys....and the girls have acheived is nothing short of amazing, you have brought a once glorious machine back to her form of glory and put her back where she belongs on the water, in an era where we seem to see the end of most British engineering marvels, it’s great to see history being made once more.
I’ve been following the bluebird project for a few years now, waiting for the day we see her back on the water, I must admit I didn’t expect to see a run of that speed!!, would of loved to come to Bute, is there any talk of Bluebird running on Coniston water??

Awesome! Never expected that kind of speed on testing! Thank you so much for the tremendous recovery and restoration, loving the video clips! Wish Dad had the time off work to come up there! 🙁 Thanks again

Bill, and the whole team of helpers and supporters you have inspired, I am speechless. I have followed this project from the start (tipping in a bit of financial support now and then when funds were low - I say this not to show off but to encourage others, particularly new followers, these guys are all volunteers and whether it be for rivets, beers, fuel (!) they will appreciate it)The speed at which the final build came together took me by surprise but not nearly as much as how the boat has performed. I genuinely believed you when you said you were aiming for say 60mph and just planning - but clearly K7 only knows one way to go up and down a loch or lake. Blown away with not only the performance but just how right the she looks on those fast runs. David

Amazing to see Bluebird back where she belongs ... On the Water. Truly historic.
Congratulations from all of the Spirit of Australia II team on this remarkable achievement. Many people find it hard to understand what it takes to achieve what you have as a team, kudos to you all.
Who knows maybe once we have completed our record attempt next year we can find some way of getting the 2 boats together for a run :)
FYI we still have a photograph of Ken Warby laying a wreath on Coniston Water in memory of the great Donald Campbell if you would like a copy for your archives please let me know.

I have been interested in Bluebird since seeing the TV coverage when it found and raised - to see this legendary British piece of History fire up and move across water again is fantastic.
Credit to all the craftsman involved and great to see it done in the North East.
I will definitely make the trip to Coniston to see her run again.
To Infinity !

Wow.

What can I say other than a really impressive effort by the Team.

She's looking so awesome. I only wish I could be there watching it all but I will certainly be there up the road from home when K7 skims across Coniston once more.

This really is The Best of British.

K7 is back!!!!!!!

I found the story of Bluebird by accident today, August 6th, on Fox News. Being a history buff I preceded to dive into the story of Donald Campbell and Bluebird along with the many people involved in the recovery and restoration. When I was a young lad Evil Knievel was the most famous daredevil that I admired and to learn about Donald was quite refreshing, a true bravado. A job well done by Bill and his crew and for Donald's family it is nice to see a tragedy 51 years ago have a silver lining in the end. I am sure Donald is looking down with a smile! Like Elvis, Donald lives on! :)
