Bluebird project getting closer to reality

Bluebird K7 was tragically ripped apart as pilot Donald Campbell, aged 45, made his final and fatal attempt at the water speed record while travelling at more than 300mph on January 4, 1967. The vessel, discovered in 2000 by diver Bill Smith after a painstaking four-year search, will be the focus of the world’s eyes once again as it aims to be ship-shape in 18 months’ time.
