Taken on #ba #Concorde
30 years ago. My first TV shoot. Flying in the jump seat with BA’s Chief Pilot over the North Sea doing acrobatics as we simulated flying to Mars. Involved 4 #rollsroyce
Olympus 593 engines delivering 680 kN of thrust. With afterburner flicked on and the joy stick fully back we achieved a climb rate of 16,000 ft./m pulling something like 5Gs. Which was more than an Apollo space mission leaving earth’s atmosphere. There is no other career quite like #advertising
and I count myself blessed. Bit of a contrast to pitching for a brand of baby wipes last week, but in its own way just as interesting. Every day I learn something new. Thanks to @sigridmapp
