I could have been the inventor of the Ski-Jump Ramp. After watching a TV programme about the aircraft carrier, I came up with an idea when seeing how a heavily loaded aircraft was struggling to take off at the end of a runway. I was only 12 years old at that time.
I carried out an experiment by fixing a ramp at the forward end of my study table and rolled a marble ball along at speed. The marble flew up into the air.
It may sound nuts, but it was like a bolt…
