  • Description

    The trailer carrying Donald Campbell's car, the Bluebird was bogged for several hours on LAKE EYRE today.

    The trailer's wheels broke through the salt crust as the Bluebird was being taken from MULOORINA homestead to a camp established on the Lake about thirty-miles away.

    A large team of army, police and other people associated with the attempt on the world land speed record spent most of this afternoon getting the trailer clear.

    Donald Campbell flew over LAKE EYRE today.

    He later flew back to ADELAIDE but is due to return to the Lake on Tuesday for the first trial run.

    An A.B.C. correspondent says there is not water on the lake. One section is a little damp.
