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.)
Apparently custom-built to accommodate a full drum kit in the trunk. Weird. But lovely. But weird. But lovely.
And for sale.

My friend and fellow Chipmunk pilot Florian pointed me to this wonderful short movie: A Blast from the Past featuring a beautiful DH.60 Racing Moth.
Sit back and enjoy!
