Hollywood icon John Travolta has clocked up over a decade as a brand ambassador for Breitling, in part because of the shared passion for aviation.

In Breitling’s 2015 advertising, Travolta is pictured alongside another flying legend, the North American X-15, which was lent to the brand by the US Air Force Flight Test Museum

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,” says Breitling.
