Do you recognise this Concorde Captain?

I had the pleasure of one trip on Concorde many years ago which I videoed for my own sake.What made it so special was the wonderful commentary from the Captain.

I happened to put it on YouTube and amazingly it's now had nearly 3m views with many comments on the great captain. So, if he's not seen it, I'd love him to be able to see all the positive comments raised...

So does anyone know who he is - here's a link and he can be seen 11s into the video


Please PM me, as I don't want publicise him if he doesn't want it.
