Bluebird K7 on Loch Fad, Isle of Bute, August 2018

The Bluebird Project Crew Training Exercise took place on Loch Fad, on the Isle of Bute, between 3 and 17 August 2018. This marked the first time the restored Bluebird K7 had taken to the water since the fateful events of 4 January 1967 when Bluebird crashed, killing her pilot, Donald Campbell.
