Reunited

One of the two aircraft exhibited in the Meryl Hansed Hall is WP190, a Hunter F5 of 1 Squadron. This aircraft participated in the Suez campaign in 1956 and is displayed wearing the black and yellow stripes that were used at the time. One of the pilots that flew it then was Flt Lt Freddie Pickard, and it was with much pleasure to that the Museum was able to reunite him with the aeroplane when he visited us in July.

Our picture shows Freddie standing by the cockpit of his old aircraft for the first time in over 50 years.

Freddie started operational flying on Meteors with 65 Squadron and moved onto the Hunter when he joined 1 Squadron. His next posting was to became CO of 6 Squadron flying Canberras and he finished his 35 year career in 1972 as OC Flying at RAF Wittering flying Harriers. He has 4530 hours in his logbook.
