Episode 1 - "Badge 007 - stirred, but not shaken" - Barbara Kracht
In this episode Barbara Kracht – one of Airbus’s original employees – number 007 – goes down memory lane recalling how the company grew from a modest start-up to a global aviation giant. The daughter of Felix Kracht, who was one of the company’s founders, she spent almost 40 years with Airbus, notably as head of Media Relations.
Barbara tells us about Airbus’s beginnings, including being on board of the A300 during its first flight and some of the challenges commercially and technically of the early years.
