The “Royal” DHC-1 Chipmunk

Nice video from the British Pathé archives: nineteen year-old Prince Charles in flightsuit taking flying lessons in Royal Air Force DHC-1 Chipmunk, from RAF base Tangmere. Watch here.

(I have had the chance to see (and fly in formation with) this very same DHC-1 Chippie during the 2017 Bull Chip Meet in Abbeville, France.)

Yet another aviation portfolio

I have recently published a new online portfolio, dedicated to aviation photography.

I am not a spotter, I don’t even own a decent tele-lens. So most of my aviation photography is about capturing lines and details, while these wonderful machines sit on the tarmac.

Moscow Russian Air Force Museum, Sion airshow, Courlaoux : everything is here.
