The first was "Freds Five", a Mk1 Sea Vixen Team from 766 Squadron.
Fred's Five, my memory is that the Leader was Lt. Cdr. Pete Reynolds RN, who had been a Test Pilot with C squadron at RAE Boscombe Down. When we were doing the early trials of the VIxen. Pete was CO of 766 Sqn in the period mid 61 to early 63 so I suspect Fred's Five performed in 1962 " Lt. Cdr. (O) Bob McCulloch. RN. (April 2007)
