Taken at Wattisham in 2010, this Apache has been named 'Dickson Pioneer III', although by my reckoning it should actually be marked 'IV' as it is the second Apache to carry that name. The dedication commemorates Captain Betram Dickson, who was the 'pioneer' of flying in the military, acquiring a flying license in 1910. Two previous types with 653 Sqn, a Auster and a Lynx, have also carried the name in the past.
