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

Nothing came to light but the following link is on their website. http://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/aboutus/media-centre/latest-news/...

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

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

Can't comment on Mark-F except to confirm that he did request that his account be deactivated Before he left Mark-F and I exchanged messages. His main concern was the style of 'debate' that the BBP crew members use. Whilst I could not entirely agree with him, nor him with me, we parted cordially.

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

In the spirit of the forthcoming New Year, anyone reading this thread before 11am on New Years eve could go to the Bluebird Coniston website and watch the countdown data-line 8-) It will be on 200 days for 24 hours. Oh, and I did check. It is 150 days since Bluebird K7 arrived on the quayside on the...

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

Being deluded has prevented me from presenting answers to quotes as clearly as I would have liked. In case anyone has forgotten why operating the boat on Coniston Water is an important opportunity for Coniston and the National Park area as a whole, then please review the granting of the Bye Law.

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

It is numbers time again folks. 100 days have passed since Bluebird K7 went on to the surface of Loch Fad on the Isle of Bute for crew training. Yes, one hundred days! I am not sure which Isle has "limited access" from the last posting - is that the British Isles post Brexit or the area known as the...
