I sure hope some of the Ostrich types at the LDNPA association take their heads out of the collective A#@holes and watch and see what they have lost out on .
Seems like all of Bute and everyone from miles around is welcoming and bending over backwards to be involved in one way or another with K7s return to the water .
WELL DONE TO ALL THE TEAM AND EVERYONE INVOLVED .......why are there no thumbs up . ??? :mrgreen: :D :D :D
Have a great productive time in Bute Bluebird K7 team
Fantastic achievement.

Watching the pics on Twitter, BB looks magnificent on the water. (and narrow!) What a magnificent achievement.

I do hope that you guys receive the recognition (and all the funding) that you deserve

Good luck team. Looks awesome.
Weather permitting I’m hoping to fly up tomorrow (Sunday 5th) from Cumbria in a gyrocopter arriving around lunchtime. Some pics possible above 400’ to avoid any drones.

when there's down time, well see about letting people come and see - can't say any more than that for now.
Fully understand. I have a 360 degree camera and thought it might be nice to take some 360 shots in the enclosure or even from the cockpit. Fully appreciate that you guys have a lot going on but just an idea. Hope I can get some pics on the 8th.

Best regards,

John

just watched the Sky footage of today, Bill, well done mate. She does work. She wants to plane. Leo Villa could have done with you lot in 66 or 55.
Hope today is the start of a smoth progression. My attention continues with my beast on Tuesday with 1000 litres of fuel.

Up on the plane already!

I didn't think I'd see this so fast!

Well done team, great progress.

Can only access here whilst at work :(

This has all been amazing so far. Really hope she can be kept alive & travel to various shows & make regular demo runs. All that amazing hard work would be a shame to be packed away at Ruskin.

Hiya Al, my first post here ... You said "My attention continues with my beast on Tuesday with 1000 litres of fuel" daft question, bit is there a schedule of duties and tasks published at all so I know what day they hope to do what? As an avid contributer to the BBP, it's hard seeing what's happening each day? Are daily updates being g posted here?

Sorry about the silly questions, thanks in anticipation 😀
