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! :)

Congratulations on a truly WONDERFUL achievement to ALL THE TEAM! It is FANTASTIC to see Bluebird in the water and looking so beautiful. I cannot convey my pride enough in all things British and in your engineering skills.

To repeat a BBC reporter:- 'what you see today is what would have been seen in the 60s'...it brings a shiver to the spine and a tear to eye reflecting on those times.

THANK YOU

ps...when's the film coming out now you have the main star of the picture??

Bill Thank you from the bottom of my heart to you and all the team for your truly fantastic engineering achievement and giving Bluebird the chance to live again. I have one of your limited addition prints of Bluebird but by any chance will you be doing a plaque or print in the future listing the names of everyone who made the impossible come true. I would be so proud to display it next to the print.

OMG, stunning! I only just found the restoration blog, have spent literally the entire weekend going through the whole story start to (so close!!) end.
Best of luck for the shakedown, can't wait to hear her howling defiance at the Gods of Speed

Hi all,
Just spent a terrific day watching you and your team relaunch Blusbird onto the water.
Well done seems such a trite congratulations for you and your team after so many years of effort and accomplishment but it is sincerely sent to you all.
Hope to return later in the week to hear her strike up and sing across the water as a Blusbird should.
Great job achieved by a great British team, Donald should be proud of you all

We were privileged enough to be able to watch Bluebird come off the ferry onto Bute while on holiday visiting family.
Good luck to you all for your time on Loch Fad.
