Re: Return to the Water

Interestingly when I looked at https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Las+Vegas,+NV,+USA/@36.125783,-115.1310902,120135m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x80beb782a4f57dd1:0x3accd5e6d5b379a3!8m2!3d36.1699412!4d-115.1398296 I see that the Americans call their premier lake facility for the area the 'National Rec...

Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel & Vimeo

What I find particularly fascinating are the stark differences in the videos of just a year ago and so seeing her emerge from a pile of bones and bits into the craft that she was back in January 67'...truly a landmark restoration project. :D
