air cadet exchange - One of the best things I did as a cadet

A total of nearly 1,300 DHC Chipmunks were built in Canada and in the UK. The prototype first flew in May 1946 and the RAF took delivery of its first Chipmunks in 1949, eventually receiving a total 735. The Chipmunk was used by the RAF as an elementary trainer and then continued in service providing Air Cadet Air Experience Flying until 1996.
