I have just been watching the video of rebuilt Bluebird during its trial run on loch Fad. This was of particular interest to me as I was a member of the Royal Signals team at Lake Coniston .I was there for some six weeks during the build up to the record attempt, and with other members of the army team lived on site . On the 2 January 1967 I left to return to my base in Catterick camp as my wife was due to give birth. On the 3 January 1967 my wife gave birth to a baby boy. The following day the 4 Jan 1967 Donald died during his attempt. I was so moved by his death I named my son Donald

Hi! Donald Campbell is my hero. I can't watch the videos without tears
in my eyes, when are the K7 logos going to be put on the floats? I have several models of the Bluebird vehicles and a few DVDs. I used to be a member of the Bluebird Supporters Club, I'm trying to contact them to rejoin the club. I want to tell Bill Smith I love what he's done to the Bluebird K7, it's fantastic, she looks beautiful.
I can't wait to go and see her someday in Conistion museum. Well done!. All the best for 2019.

First of all sincere congratulations on getting Bluebird running on the water once again. If I may be so bold as to suggest a funding stream: commemorative postal covers. I'd bet you could shift a few in you shop.

Fantastic talk by Bill to the Royal Aeronautical Society at Rolls Royce in Birmingham. Thanks Bill, very educational and completely irreverent! You described it as taking a screwed up torn up piece of kitchen foil and turning it back into a roll. It didn't look as easy as that.....

Would you consider repeating the talk to a motor club?

Evening Bill. Saw you yesterday when you were over at the Bluebird Cafe with a couple of divers and a tape measure! Was speculating that you were there to measure up for Bluebird being able to get down the ramp and into the lake. I was going to come over and talk with you but you were busy as we left in conversation with the Lake District National Park chap. So, was that what you were on with yesterday? Have been following all the work you have been doing to Bluebird. It is all excellent stuff. As a young (8 years old) man I was desperate for my father to take me over to Coniston to watch Campbell on one of his runs. Sadly it never happened. Best wishes

Well done, Bill and team. Bluebird K7 first came to my attention when as an 8-year old kid, I saw Donald Campbell's final on BBC 'Nationwide'. They cut back to the studio to show a distinguished gent with tears in his eyes - Leo Villa, chief mechanic to both Donald and his father, Sir Malcolm.
To see such an iconic boat rescued, and then return to her former glory by you all has been one of the highlights of the summer.
My g/f' hopes to take me on a walking holiday in the 2019. If plan to have K7 running again around that time, I'd love to see her in the flesh, streaking across the water.

Thanks for rekindling a 70's childhood memory. 😊

Look forward to hearing from you!

I've been following the project for 10 years now, and just saw the video of the The Bluebird running again.
The respect and dedication to honor Donald Campbell's memory has been an inspiration for me.
Congratulations to you all.
