John Travolta and the North American X-15

Two flying legends in the Breitling sky

The Watch Quote™ - April 27th, 2015



Global star, seasoned pilot and aviation aficionado, John Travolta has been flying the Breitling banner for more than 10 years. For the new 2015 campaign advertisement, the privileged partner of aeronautics professionals depicts him alongside another flying legend, the North American X-15, exceptionally loaned by the Air Force Flight Test Museum from its base at Edwards, California.


During the 1960s, this experimental rocket-plane made nearly 200 flights, pushing the limits of aeronautics and opening the door to space, notably by setting two historical records: one for altitude in 1963, at 107,960 m, and the other for speed, at 7274 km/h (Mach 6.7). The photos for this new visual co-starring Travolta and the legendary X-15 were shot in California, on the runway of the famous Mojave Air and Space Port. They are a vivid tribute to the conquest of the skies, a grand adventure with which Breitling is closely linked through its reliable, accurate and innovative instruments.
