'FRED' reassembled

One of the home-built aircraft displayed at the Newark Air Museum, Clutton FRED (Flying Runabout Experimental Design) Series 2 G-BJAD has recently been partially reassembled. This work has been undertaken as part of the ongoing enhancement of the display area in the museum’s Display Hangar 1 that incorporates the Lee Richards Annular Biplane replica, Tiger Moth, General Aircraft Monospar and several micro-lights.

The main work involved refitting FRED’s innovative folding wings, which were designed to be folded and unfolded by one person and also allowed the type to be “towed behind a car at speeds of up to 70 mph”.

During the coming months the area around these airframes in Display Hangar 1 will be developed further to provide enhanced access and improved viewing of this unusual range of aircraft. Courtesy Howard Heeley - Down To Earth Promotions

One of the newly-acquired and also newly-repainted Merlins diverted from the Danish military order - designated the HC3A, these examples have yet to shed their bulbous noses and will equip the newly-reformed 78 Squadron in December, which has effectively 'relocated' from the Falkland Islands. The former 78 Squadron will assume a Flight status. Picture courtesy Gary Stedman
