Sixty-five years ago this month, in January 1952, DH Chipmunk T10s WG486 and WK518 were delivered, brand new, to the Royal Air Force. Just two of the 735 Chipmunks built for military use, these are now the last and only ‘Chippies’ still in RAF service and, far from being ‘pensioned off’, they are still an important and active part of the BBMF historic aircraft fleet.
