This week I've been up to something a little different. I've been with the Waterbird Project on Lake Windermere, a replica of Britain's first seaplane which flew for the first time on Windermere in 1911. The last couple of days have been the culmination of over ten years work on the part of the project team, which led to a successful first flight (several short "hops") of the replica yesterday, and then a much more successful and longer flight over the lake today. Well done to everybody involved!!


  1. That is a different type of project for you. But it looks like fun and the aircraft is beautiful.

  2. Wonderful achievement and beautiful to see it in the air!

  3. That is absolutely fantastic. Lovely to see.
