F for Funnell

Canadair Sabre Mk. IV XB800 “Black 4”, B Flight, 26 Squadron, RAF

On January 4th, 1955, Flying Officer Tony Funnell lost his normal hydraulic system, followed by
most of the utility-system pressure, and had limited success using the emergency hydraulic system.
Through skilful piloting, Funnell was able to return to base, shepherded by Flying Officer Wilkinson;
a lucky break indeed!
