Illustrated is the prototype of the Chipmunk, the first wholly-new design from de Havillands' Canadian associate, which first flew on 22 May 1946. From the Chipmunk, de Havilland Canada has gone on to produce a succession of successful designs, culminating in the Dash 8.
The Chipmunk has also been the subject of numerous modifications, some of which are illustrated: (top to bottom) the single-seat Mk 23 ag-plane. the "Masefield" variant with blown canopy and wheel spats and a test-bed for the Bonner Super Sapphire V6 engine.
