    C.26 Built at Kingnorth. Trials 8 November 1916. To Pulham from Kingsnorth 21 November 1916. Forced landing due to petrol shortage 1 October 1917. Deflated and returned to Pulham. On 12 December 1917, C.26's captain, Flight Lieutenant KILBURN, a close friend of C.27's Flight Lieutenant DIXON who had gone missing the day before, begged his CO to allow him to go out and search for C.27 and her missing crew. Despite marginal weather conditions this request was granted and C.26 departed, Desperately searching for signs of C.27, Flight Lieutenant KILBURN stretched the airships endurance to the limit. Unfortunately with a rising head wind, he ran out of fuel and drifted over Holland; landing at Portugal near Dordrecht, Holland, with crew. Ship broke away and landed further north at Eesmes, near the Zuideer Zee. Flight Lieutenants KILBURN and PLOWDEN and crew were interned. Hours flown: 202 August-December 1917 Deleted: Pulham 13 December 1917 (force landed Holland)
