A team of British engineers is aiming to break the 1,000mph (1,610km/h) barrier on wheels for the first time. Wing Commander Andy Green, who broke the land speed record in 1997, talks about why he wants to go even faster as the driver of Bloodhound. Watch the video here. I served at RAF Leeming with Andy in 1994: it’s great to see a fighter pilot setting out to inspire engineers.
