The prototype Chipmunk first flew in May 1946 and delivery of 218 aircraft for the Royal Canadian Air Force began in 1948. 735 Chipmunk T Mk 10’s powered the Gipsy Major 8 engine were supplied to the Royal Air Force for primary flying training. The British version was fully aerobatic and was fitted with a multi-panelled sliding canopy rather than the ‘bubble’ type that was typical in Canada. Another 217 Chipmunks were built for export sale, and 60 were built under license in Portugal. Each CD features a multi selection of high-quality close-up detailed photographs to help you with your latest building project.
