Hi all at the Bluebird project,
I finally joined the forum after following the rebuild for some years. I'm the service engineer/ tourist from Preston that forgot the golden rule, bring buscuits!
After spending last Saturday lending a hand with you guys (this time bringing buscuits) and seeing the complexities first hand my respect for what the bluebird project team has done and is doing have massively increased.

Keep up the good work, hope to get back up soon. James

Hi James,

Enjoyed working with you last Sat. When you coming back?

I really enjoyed meeting you all and lending a hand with bluebird k7. I was planning on coming back up next Saturday, but if there's a more convenient day this week just let me know. James

Hi all,

Rich Woods here, from Derbyshire. I've been following you a long time, mainly through your main websites and the odd update that appears in the aviation press. As with many, I had a passing knowledge of the legendary Donald Campbell and his boat, but I got sucked in more to reading about your projects when I found out about the Barracuda. I must have spent the better part of a day lost in your website reading the old diary entries! Its all inspiring stuff, and its heartening to see what can be done with what often seems to be the worst damaged material - but an intensely positive attitude.

I'd like to visit Bluebird and the Bluebird Project Team at some point, though my free time takes a hit by my own commitments to a large project. I'm part of a team maintaining and attempting to return to flight Avro Shackleton WR963 at Coventry. We're a few years off seeing it happen; ours is more a paperwork battle with authority than a rebuild at the moment.

Hope you don't mind me joining in.

Regards,

Rich

Hi Rich - good to meet you, if you know what I mean. You're very welcome and please don't be backwards in coming forwards.

Newbie saying hi

Hi I would just like to say hello and congratulate everyone involved in returning k7 back to the water. I have only just stumbled on the website and have spent the last day reading all the diary entries. I will be making a donation soon to the cause and only wish I had the skills involved to come and assist.
