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

It's all very simple. The museum owns half and we own the other half so we give them 80% of the year to display her and we take her on tour for the other 20%. Now all they have to do is agree to agree, sign the contracts and everyone wins. Or she could be wheeled in there, the doors closed behind he...

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

Sadly, it's not about arguing, it's the regrettable task of having to keep putting the truth out there because if you don't people either make it up or assume you have something to hide, or both. You only have to look at what keeps happening to Nigel. I'd rather be called a t**t today and let time b...

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

Best I do a thorough job with this... I don't doubt for one moment that those closely involved with the Bluebird Project have done what they have with the very best intentions, however I also sincerely believe that most of those really closely involved seem to have developed some sort of collective ...

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

ITV Granada News has just reported on bluebirds return to Coniston in 2019. Showed Donalds accident and stated bluebird had since been restored by his son :roll: Now that did make me laugh because I call Gina 'Mum' and she often replies with 'Son' so has someone been listening in and taken it liter...

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

Thanks, Rich, but I reckon the Christmas Lights Committee have this. That said, if you look at the item above the light shortage in the same minutes it seems there's a horticultural issue. A planter at Little Moss Close needs some attention as there is a large fern growing in it. Was thinking we cou...

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

I think we touched a nerve with the parish council on twitter! Wasn't the plan - they did say their Christmas Light Committee couldn't afford lights. Yes, it's exasperating that it isn't done but, hey, for the sake of a quick trip to the shops and a few quid there's the lights. When my girls were b...

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

I do try to remain positive despite everything and this week I'm off to deliver a presentation to the Royal Aeronautical Society at R-R Controls and Data HQ in Birmingham. Then, in a couple of weeks, I'm presenting at a two day gas turbine users conference at Old Trafford, no less, whilst my first s...

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

A quick question - seriously, am I missing something here? I obviously receive a lot of feedback from various sources and one thing keeps coming up - a sort of endemic twisty-facedness about us running on Coniston in the school holidays. It was embraced on Bute and so it should be. Both adults and k...

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

I feel for them, a mammoth task just raising the required funds, let alone corralling folk and training them up to know what to do and providing them with the correct equipment to do it. It's obvious to all that they have left themselves a very long way behind the game despite our efforts to school...

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

As the actual dates have been published in Lancashire Life Magazine, can I add some realism and pressure to all my friends on the crew by starting a countdown day timer? 252 days to go! :o :o Hmmm. Caution, chaps. This is all a bit like NASA beginning a countdown while the Bureaucrats have the rock...
