On return from an operation over Frankfurt, Warren's plane encountered German fighters over the French coast, and the ensuing fight damaged the elevator and rudder controls, and two engines. Unable to make turns to return to an airfield, the pilot decided to crash land in a field. All seven crewmembers escaped the crash alive, including fellow Guinea Pig Vic Hobbs.
