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

So now all we have to do is run the plan that we worked so hard to put together for our long awaited return to Coniston, just on a different waterway so we're going to stick with the plan elsewhere. while the BBP continues to perfect ….. our ability as a team to safely operate her Remember: Safety ...

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

No, there's too much pertinent information here. This thread started on August 15th when I and many others were on the Isle of Bute. And in the time since Mike is right that a lot of useful information has been posted. As registered forum users can see the statistics of each person who has posted. ...

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

It seems I have supporters because someone who was apparently in authority?, although no longer, has sent me detailed information as to the content of three relevant documents; If its lies or a wind up Bill please say so but the information/wording appears to be a genuine direct transcript. Ernie, ...

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

An hour ago, I was reminded by a member of the British public, that individuals and families have lost deposit money because they expected Bluebird to be running on Coniston Water in July 2019. Money which has been retained by Coniston businesses or businesses operating within Coniston. 'Lost' becau...

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

I was upset on the day that the Members of the LDNPA voted (at their Kendal offices) not to give the operators of Bluebird any opportunity to run the craft after the Proving Trial. No reason for the vote against was given, and I cannot recall the discussion points. The organisers of the Speed Record...

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

For over 35 years I have given talks to various groups. Regarding Campbell, out of interest I always ask the audience what significance Dumbelyung and lake Mead have, blank expressions. Ernie, I am sure that your audiences now know about those two important locations, as well as Ullswater perhaps. ...

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

I am not sure what reply #403 from Conistoncollie was meant to achieve, after 26 posts had been made in 28 hours. The forum 'excitement' was of course started by the BBC article "What next for Donald Campbell's record-breaker?" Bill's quoted words were directed at three members of the crew and came ...

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

Some interesting reporting, along with perhaps 'lets leave out some of the detailed 'facts' and focus on the contention of documents' and then throw in how lawyers may now need to be involved. At the November BEWG meeting, the Curator of the Ruskin had two (2) of the three (3) documents that set out...

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

The bit I dont get is why all the parties involved . BBP , BEWG , LDNPA ,Ruskin folks etc all not just agree to meet at a local pub put there differences (if there are any) aside and over a few pints hash things out and agree on something The Bluebird Event Working Group (BEWG) was established in 2...
