Re: Where can Bluebird be seen

A white horse walks into a pub and says 'A Scots whisky please'. The landlord says 'We've got a Scots whisky named after you'. The horse says 'What,........ Neddy?'

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

Congratulations to the Bluebird team who have done a wonderful job. She looked magnificent and preformed in a way that was truly magical. Grown men cried? ...
