  • Description

    Donald Campbell, holder of the water speed record of 243,62 mph, showed his wife Tonia Bern, May 12, Bluebird on Coniston Water. Newsmen at the lakeside are waiting event number two now: Campbell's helmsmanship to test Bluebird this month.

    Campbell was in the U.S. last month with his wife - she is a night club entertainer - to visit Salt Lake City, Utah, and Ottawa in preparation for his projected attempts on the world land and water speed records next year.

    On Coniston Water he will try to improve on his present record and will be aiming at a speed of over 250 mph. Underwater modifications to the boat have been made on the control surfaces, rudder and stablishing fins.
