Chipmunks Around the World
Tony Cowan FRIN will be describing his epic Chipmunk flight around the world at Shuttleworth.
Sunday 22 May sees a celebrtion of the 70th anniversary of Pat Fillingham’s first flight of the de Havilland Canada Chipmunk at Downsview, Toronto.
The celebration, at Shuttleworth, Old Warden, will include a talk at 1030 given by the leader of the 'Chipmunks Around the World' expedition, Sqn Ldr Tony Cowan MBE FRIN RAF (Ret'd). The circumnavigation, in 1997, was supported by the then-new RIN website as the only source for following progress. The supporting aircraft even carried the Institute's URL 'www.rin.org.uk' on its side - we believe the first time ever that a website had been portrayed in this way.
Do come along to listen to Tony's talk - and see the huge collection of Chipmunks that will gather at Old Warden.
