Flight Lieutenant Ole Bechgaard was an airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who was killed during the Second World War.

He was born to parents Poul and Elizabeth Johanne Bechgaard, of Sweden, but has been classifed as Danish by some sources.

Bechgaard, serving as a pilot with 604 (County of Middlesex) Squadron, died on 7 October 1943 when his Bristol Beaufighter (serial V8557) stalled and subsequently crashed during a flight test.[1]

He is buried in Catterick Cemetery, Yorkshire.
