Test pilot Finke killed

Hello,

In Fall 1944 a German test pilot named Finke was killed at or near Sorau testing a Fw 190 D-9 with the MW 50 system, probably WNr 210048.

I'm searching the full name of the pilot and the date of the crash... and every other available detail.

Thanks in advance

Re: Test pilot Finke killed

There is a little information in "Ta-152" by Dietmar Hartmann. His name was Werner Finke and he is listed with other Focke-Wulff test pilots,such as Rolf Mondry, Hans Kampfmeier, Hans Sander, Georg Koehne, and Bernard Maerschel.
