Every month, driver Andy Green writes his diary page bringing the project up to date from his perspective, and looking forward to what is planned next on the way to breaking the World Land Speed Record
Earlier this month I was speaking to a British Airways audience at their annual flight safety day. My aim was to tell them how we set the first-ever supersonic record back in 1997, with Thrust SSC, and to talk about how we planned to get to 1000 mph with BLOODHOUND, safely. It was also a useful chance for us to show our homework to a group of industry safety specialists – in this case 200 commercial pilots and aircraft engineers. If there is something that we haven’t thought of yet, they will find it! From my point of view, this is one of the great strengths of Project BLOODHOUND. The more expert advice we have, the more confident we can be that we’re going in the right direction.
