No correct guesses yet. But we're getting closer!

1. More than a thousand built.
2. Produced over a 10 year period.
3. Currently out of production but still in active service.
4. More than 20 countries used or use this aircraft.
5. Single engine.
6. The engine was noted for its durability and reliability, and set multiple records for high TBO.
7. This aircraft is often seen at airshows.
8. Empty weight is under a ton.
9. One of the features adopted for the aircraft to perform better in its trainer role was adoption of an engine-driven vacuum pump in place of external venturi tubes to power cockpit instrumentation.
10. A heavily modified example of this aircraft is a popular RC model that has long been available in kit and ARF form.

How about the Chipmunk? Thanks; Ernie P.


The de Haviland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk

The de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk is a tandem, two-seat, single-engined primary trainer aircraft developed and manufactured by Canadian aircraft manufacturer de Havilland Canada. It was developed shortly after the Second World War and sold heavily throughout the immediate post-war years, being typically employed as a replacement for the de Havilland Tiger Moth biplane. The Chipmunk holds the distinction of being the first postwar aviation project conducted by de Havilland Canada. It performed its maiden flight on 22 May 1946 and was introduced to operational service that same year. During the late 1940s and 1950s, the Chipmunk was procured in large numbers by military air services such as the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), Royal Air Force (RAF), and several other nations' air forces, where it was often utilised as their standard primary trainer aircraft. The type was also produced under licence by de Havilland in the United Kingdom, who would produce the vast majority of Chipmunks, as well as by OGMA (Oficinas Gerais de Material Aeronáutico) in Portugal. The type was slowly phased out of service from the late 1950s onwards, although in the ab initio basic training role, this did not occur within the Royal Air Force until 1996, having finally been replaced by the Scottish Aviation Bulldog. However, many of the Chipmunks that had been formerly in military use were sold on to civilians, either to private owners or to companies, where they were typically used for a variety of purposes, often involving the type's excellent flying characteristics and its capability for aerobatic manoeuvres. More than 70 years after the type having first entered service, hundreds of Chipmunks remained airworthy and were in operation around the world.

And we have a winner!!! Ernie has it!

The last clue refers to the Super Chipmunk that Art Scholl had built: It's been a very popular ARF since it's a good flying model but it has such a complicated paint job.

I look forward to Ernie's quiz!

Thank you, Sir. I hope my next question lives up to your's. My question will deal with an almost unknown aircraft, but one that should be much better known. It played a key part in aviation history; yet has somehow been almost forgotten. Thanks; Ernie P.

Okay; let's start. Thanks; Ernie P.


What warbird do I describe?

1. This aircraft is one of the least known, yet “most popular” aircraft ever built.

2. As such, it was in very common use for a long time; yet seldom mentioned or even known, today.
