The Chipmunk brings back fond memories for many people who did their air cadet flying in this iconic aircraft. Introduced in the 1950's it was the RAF primary trainer until the 1970s, and stayed with the military until the 1980s, for the air cadets. A favourite with pilots who love her elegant flying style. Our Chippy began its service in Edinburgh in 1952, was civilianised and rebuilt at Duxford in 2000 after several years in storage, and is continuing its life now at Compton.
