Thought I'd mention a book I have just read, unsurprisingly about something to do with Concorde!

I got this on my birthday. It is a biography written by Susan Ottoway about John Hutchinson, who I must confess is a bit of a hero of mine! It is a terrific read which goes through his fascinating life, from growing up in India to becoming a pilot with the RAF, and eventually going on to fly Concorde, with lots of events inbetween! I enjoyed it so much I have read it in 3 days flat, and I am a bit sad now I have finished!

No but I have read the book on Guy Gibson by the same author. She appears to be very good and some of her other works are worth a look.
