Freddie Pickard returns

The Museum’s Hunter Mk F5, WP190, is displayed in the black and yellow stripes of the Suez Campaign in which it flew. One of its pilots in that campaign was Freddie Pickard and we were delighted to welcome him back to his old Hunter when he visited the Museum with his family recently.

Freddie Pickard flew the Hawker Hunter on display when he was Commander of 1 Squadron. Freddie started his training on Havards, moved on to Mosquitos, but of all the aircraft he flew, most enjoyed his time with the Mosquito derivative the Hornet, the manoeverability of which clinched it for him. He went on the the Hunter and achieved the rank of Group Captain flying the Harrier.

Sunday 12 July was a special day since it was the first time so many of his relatives met the aircraft he flew, and our photo shows the family group in front of the Hunter.
