In the video, Garbeff stands in front of the largest wind tunnel in the world, where he helps to test models of new airplanes and rockets.
The video has been viewed more than 70,000 times and has captured the attention of British media, including the BBC and the popular news website The Telegraph. Teachers at Whiteley's school, Sunny Hill Primary, played the video at a school assembly.
