This Chipmunk makes a leisurely flyby during the Planes of Fame airshow.  Introduced in 1946, the Chipmunk was the standard primary trainer for the Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Air Force and several other air forces through much of the post-WWII period. This one was built in Canada in 1952, and flew with the RAF until 1960, then served with the Ghana Air Force before making its way into the U.S.  First flown in 1946, the Portuguese Air Force still operates six Chipmunks.  Nikon D500 w/Tamron 150-600mm.
