We also asked @Richard Branson to recount @virginatlantic's very first flight 38 years ago—from how much champagne was drunk, to the famous friends who sat in on the inaugural journey. ✈️ cntrvlr.co/s9fFdNc

“We started @virginatlantic against everybody's advice. [...] But my attitude in life is that if you can create something that's better than what everybody else is doing, then you have a chance of surviving—and that if you don't try, you're definitely not going to succeed.”

Another exciting development from @Richard Branson is @Virgin Galactic, which will be taking reservations for 90-minute flights, set to launch next year. 🚀 cntrvlr.co/FxLaGoN
