Aviation Autographs

The Canadian-built DHC-1B-2-S5 / RCAF 18048 and the owner, Harry Schoning share their roots in the RCAF with the Chipmunk still carrying its RCAF markings. 

Richard Wilsher’s British-built DHC-1 T.Mk.10 / RAF WP833 first flew in 1952.  It spent its RAF life giving air experience flights to Air Cadets.  In 1997 it was one of a pair that flew around the World, for which it was painted in the colors of the Red Arrows.

The Portuguese-built DHC-1 T.Mk.20 / FAP 1366 owned by Bill Sleeper was built in 1959 and served in the Portuguese Air Force at various bases until 1989 when it was retired.

Mark Meredith’s British-built DHC-1 Mk.22 Super Chipmunk / N7DW was awarded a Bronze Lindy as Champion Custom Classic Aircraft at AirVenture 2014.  Like many British-built Chippies, it began life in the Royal Air Force, in 1951.
