The Bluebird Project

On the 4th of January 1967, whilst trying to break his own water speed record of 276mph, Donald Campbell and his Bluebird speedboat vaulted from Coniston water in the Lake District. Donald was killed instantly and the Bluebird broke up into several pieces, sinking 41metres to the bottom of the lake.
In March 2001, Donald's body was recovered by a team of divers lead by Bill Smith, along with the remains of the Bluebird.
Since then a rebuild has been underway and is in its last stages.
Frost Restorers Equipment is one of the official sponsors of the Bluebird project and has donated parts to aid the rebuild.
