CF-DIO-X first flew at Downsview, Ontario, Canada on 22 May 1946 piloted by Pat Fillingham, a test pilot who had been seconded from the parent de Havilland company.

Following on from the success of the 70th Anniversary Fly In on 22 May 2016 and by kind permission of the Shuttleworth Collection, a Fly In will be held at Old Warden Aerodrome in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the first flight of the DHC-1 Chipmunk.

There is much to do, updates will be published here when we have further information.

Please do not contact the Shuttleworth Collection about this event but email mail AT chipmunk75th DOT com. However, there is little information to give out at this time. The Contact Form that was on this site has been removed.
