Re: Pic of the Day

So will pic of the day be returning to this website? Miss not seeing day to day stuff at work. Due to security, social media is not accessible.

Re: A '60s hydrofoil on eBay!

The SRN.4's & all associated Proteous spares are not owned by the museum. They are owned by Wensley Haydon-Baillie. He purchased them for the engines that power his yacht, Brave Challenger. I was told that 1 SRN.4 was suffering from corrosion issues & was cut up mainly for the scrap money to pay owe...

Re: Quicksilver

Not sure your statement was called for.

Was the 1st thing i've seen for ages about it. Was only asking a simple question re being a mock up like Bloodhound for demos.

Re: Quicksilver

Nice photo posted on Facebook of the project. Is what we see real or mock up for demo purposes?

Re: Across The Lake

Personally i love the film, with all it's inaccuracies, it's still a good watch with a great soundtrack.

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

After seeing her in the flesh at Bute & seeing & hearing her, there is no way she should stop. Better than any Spitfire in the sky.

Keep her alive Bill & your team. Stirling work!!!!!

Re: Isle of Bute

After arriving on Bute Thursday afternoon & getting to the Loch in enough time to see her last run. All I can say is what a job. As good a living memorial to all concerned than any Spitfire is to the few.
Had a closer look at her today & chatted to Bill & Malcolm. Keep fighting guys, you deserve to see a lot more than having her locked in a dark museum for eternity.
K7 is alive & needs to be kept that way👍

Re: Isle of Bute

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.
