Book Reviews and Testimonials
“I was privileged to have played a part in the early development flying of the prototype Chipmunk, demonstrating,
and now owning one, so I share Hugh’s love for this aircraft and its history. Reading this story brings back many pleasant
memories of both the aeroplane and the men I worked with to make this dream come true. Well done Hugh!”
— George Neal, Chief Test Pilot DHC (Ret’d)
“There have been many good books about many types of aircraft, but this is without any
question one of the most comprehensive and thoroughly researched monographs ever to grace
the shelves of the aviation enthusiast. It provides a wealth of historical information for the
serious student, a level of data that is sufficient to satisfy the most ardent rivet-counter, and
enough pictorial evidence to keep us modellers happily employed for the rest of our lives.”
— Air Vice Marshall Brian Huxley CB CBE RAF (Ret’d)
“Wow! Clearly the definitive treatise on the Chipmunk, chock full of photos never published
before and with prose engagingly novel-like. A treasure for ‘Chipmunkers’ like me, and surely
for any ‘true-blue’ aviation enthusiast. The authors captured a wealth of fascinating facts, and
in the telling, the endearing but mischievous personality of this remarkable aircraft!”
— Bob Fassold, Major General, Canadian Forces (Ret’d),
President and Chief Pilot of the Classic Aircraft Company, providing pilot training and passenger flights in an ex-RCAF Chipmunk.
