Sir Hugh Massingbird-Massingbird was the commander of the Royal Flying Corps in the British Army during World War 1.

When Captain Edmund Blackadder thought that the Germans were engaged in an air assault, against the British forces, Captain Blackadder wondered where the Flying Corps was. Captain Blackadder picked up the phone and left a message for Sir Hugh Massingbird-Massingbird, head of the Flying Corps: "Message reads: 'Where are you, you bastard?'". Seconds later, Captain Blackadder learned that the planes nearby were British.
