    I can see that my grandfather flew this plane FK211 on 12 September 1942. He (Flt/LT FW Cook) was the pilot. Four passengers. The flight was for an hour to undertake instrument tests.

    I can also see he flew FK211 on 16th September. First flight at 15:55 for 55 minutes. Five passengers. Duty – Photography

    Second flight at 18:30 with 1 passenger from Brize Norton to Hawarden, a flight of 1 hour 5 minutes.

    He must have left it there. I see his next plane was an Oxford which he flew to Shrewsbury, and from there back to Brize Norton the following day.#
