We know Alec Freeman - SHADO's number two man - was a pilot with the RAF. I'm not sure it was ever actually specified that he was a bomber pilot, but I have always seen him as such. Perhaps that's because the only time we actually see him fly on the show is when he pilots the big concorde plane in Identified, which he does most competently, even while under alien attack!
Freeman is the perfect foil for Straker -- warm where Straker is cold, soft where Straker is hard, human where Straker is calculating; but make no mistake - Freeman is nobody's fool and not one to be trifled with. He is quite protective of his commanding officer and best friend and he doesn't mind showing it. The picture above is from one of my favorite Freeman scenes - where that big man came to threaten Straker, who simply takes a step sideways for Alec to step in and clobber the guy, which he does with no hesitation ....
I'd like to thank Lisa, from whose Image Library I "commandeered" a few of the pictures on this page, and Marc and TAFKAR from who I believe the other images probably came... Visit their web sites from the links back at SHADAIR HQ!
