Low Flying Pilot visits

Flt Lt Alan Pollock was amongst the visitors to the launch of Norman Franks’ biography of WW2 fighter ace Frank Carey entitled ‘Frank ‘Chota’ Carey’ which took place at the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum on Sunday May 14th. He it was who, acting on an impulse whilst on his way back from Tangmere one day back in April 1968, flew his Hawker Hunter under the top span of Tower Bridge simultaneously gaining instant fame in the news media and ending his RAF pilot career. The picture shows Alan once again attempting this highly illegal action but this time on the unique Tangmere special flight simulator software which is on sale at the museum shop. So you too can try your skill and see if you can do what Alan Pollock did – albeit in the safety of your own home.
