Re: Pic of the Day

Thanks for the detailed answer. What with the huge damage caused by the crash, & the missing parts that went Whi knows where, after the abortive recovery attempts in '67. I've always been stunned that you've managed to repair & re-use as much original K7 as you have. Keep up the fantastic work

Re: Pic of the Day

Now although you good people have done your very best to use as much as the original Bluebird as you possibly can, there must be other components beside the canopy, that we either, too badly damaged in the crash, or still at the bottom of Coniston Lake. Of all of them, which is the one you'd most li...

Re: The Bloodhound SSC/Thrust/Noble Thread

Andy Green's latest diary is quite the read...it makes K7's cockpit seem even more antiquated than ever! http://www.bloodhoundssc.com/blog/andy-green%E2%80%99s-diary-%E2%80%93-october-2015 That just shows how technology in general has advanced since the era when K7 was a record breaker. If Donald C...

Re: Pic of the Day

Occasionally when reading up about K7, one can't help but wonder how "Heath-Robinson" some of it it is. Take the blurb with today's pic for example. Part of the original wiring loom was kettle flex? I'm left in equal wonderment as to how they managed to get K7 to work in the 1st place (is it any won...

Re: Pic of the Day

You're quite right with the caption of today's pic. It is extremely hard to believe that is Donald's original fuel filter. Over 30 years in the bottom of a lake, & you manage to make look like a brand new, fresh out of it's box part! Every time I see something like this, I'm newly dumbfounded by the...

Re: Pic of the Day

Was quite surprised at the size of the fuel tank in today's pic. Thought it would need to be larger than that, the faster something goes, the more energy it consumes, or that's how the theory goes. Shows how much I know (ie not much!). What's the capacity of that tank please?

Re: The Workshop Music Channel

Happened to be listening to Marillon's "Out Of This World" earlier today. As well as containing Donald's last known words "I'm going!", other words are spoken. Is this Leo & other members of the support team trying to make an unfortunately futile attempt to contact DC after the crash?

Re: The Workshop Music Channel

Can't believe Metallica aren't liked & no Slipknot mentioned yet either. Iron Maiden & Rammstein are awesome live too. I'd sooner listen to John die-grinding all day, though now I think of it, it's much the same sound isn't it? :lol: Then I'm sure to be delighted to find out that Iron Maiden have a...

Re: The Workshop Music Channel

Together with Roger Daltrey of The Who, I consider Robert Plant one of the very best heavy rock singers, so will give his new album a listen. The book about Brian May's guitar also sounds a good read. If memory serves, part of a bicycle seat ended up being used as the tremolo arm (?). Certainly an ...

Re: Pic of the Day

Is there a gallery i can't find on the website that has all the pic of the days in? Is the a way to view all the diary photo's without having to read through all the diary pages? Try "media" at the projects home page. That should sort out all your picture needs nicely. And if that doesn't, just goo...
