Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

And if they contributed on the basis of a very clear statement that the object was to return the boat to Coniston, as existed on the home page of this website until recently, and which still exists on the 'donate' page (presumably Billy has failed to spot and try to re-write history on that bit, ye...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

This is all extremely disappointed for everyone around the globe who loves that blue boat and would love to see it do for what it was made for - skimming across the water. Sam, whoever you are and what your connections to the Campbell family may be, belittling other people, expecially when they have...

Re: Avro Vulcan XL319

It's amazing how you got these going again. I need to admitt though, its kind of boaring to watch. Having a jet engine in a boat located near the water and to see how it blows the water behind it, is a lot more exciting to me :D

Re: Avro Vulcan XL319

Bill, I understand your plan is to start the engine and run it - I asume in idle or a little above. How do you consider the overall condition of the engine? Would it be possible to run it full throttle?

Re: Planning Time before the Proving Trial?

If the 2020 trails rely on the same people/organizations which prevented the 2019 trails, then I don't bet a penny on any runs in 2020.

Annoying behaviour of Change.org

After signing the petition to allow K7 to run this summer and also looking at the opposite petition to store K7 in the museum right away, I now get an email from Change.org every 2 or 3 days I shall finally sign the damn latter petition too. NO, I do not want to. Buggers.

Due to problems with the carburator its standing since then. Its a but ugly too. Some years ago I bought a Quantya, which is an electric cross ...
