Looking for a particular pilot, and the planes he flew.

    Does anyone have a full history of the planes Flying Officer Adrian Warburton flew during World War II?

    So far I have found:

    And something about a Maryland?

    I wondered if he flew anything else apart from that Hurricane.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi SeaNorris,

    I share your interest in Adrian Warburton and have been researching for photos regarding the PR Beaufighter he flew with (being a field depot modification has made it difficult in locating any pics showing where exactly the cameras where palced...)

    Regarding your question, he also flew with a Spitfire PR.IV and a Beaufighter Ic modified for PR role. The book "Warburton's War" that Gnomey directed you at is really worth reading as it gives a very detailed account of Adrian Warburton's service and personal history including all the planes he flew with - a very colorful and audacious character! The way he vanished/died was appropriate to the way he fought and lived his life...

    Cheers,
    Corto
