    Default Brian Watton 3134158 killed 4th September 1953

    Hopefully a quick one!!

    Could any members tell me the serial of the aircraft that Brian Watton was flying when he was killed on the 4th September 1953 please?

    I think it was a Meteor of 66 Squadron.

    Any help would be great.

    According to Colin Cummings "Last Take-Off" PO Watton was flying Meteor F8 serial number WA778. It suffered structural failure of the wings at low level recovering from a high speed dive. Debris landed in and around the Butlins holiday camp at Filey.
