Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Please enlighten my aged brain....... what have you not got started yet ?


Tish Tish, Veiled threats towards your best pal Bill "And his team", it does not appear to be very nice at all, quite unbecoming, very Appleyard.

Re: Visit to North Shields- model makers.

Glad you guys got some close up time with the boat...

Shame Ernie couldn’t make it as I am sure he could have shared many modelling tips with you.

Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

Not wanting to hijack the subject, but freshwater v seawater...inland waterway v open sea. Must be a big big difference. I remember Fish doing some diving off St Abbs many years ago & commentating how exhausting & disorientating it was. Techniques used are exactly the same no matter where you are, ...
