I know, it’s probably a Percival Prentice, not a Chipmunk. Got confused because Hergé usually took some liberty with aircrafts in his comics, but there’s also definitely a “Chippie” in the “Black Island“. Red/white with a bubble canopy.
Anyway, you get it. A proper Chipmunk should run a DH Gipsy engine. And the guy who writes this cannot currently fly his plane because of Gipsy cylinder issues. Go figure…
A very nice review of an equally nice watch. While Longines is not a brand which comes spontaneously to my mind when discussing aviation and pilot watches, they do have a legitimacy in the field, having provided the Royal Air Force with a nice, simple, readable time instrument back in the 30s (and up to the 60s). The RAF 6b-159.
First attempt at “shooting stars”, from Creux du Van, Switzerland. Suboptimal conditions with an almost full moon and a thin layer of clouds. But an opportunity to learn new techniques and fool around with Lightroom sliders.
