Photo Comment

This Chippie is ex RAF Rhodesian Air Training Group which means that it did not serve in the UK but was supplied new to Rhodesia with 69 others. However it appears never to have been assembled in Rhodesia as it was sold with nil hours flown via DH South Africa to Australia. One of the original three Chipmunks acquired by the Royal Victorian Aero Club and registered VH-RVZ in September 1954. Sold in 1965 and became VH-RTW.
