Museum’s New Chipmunk Cockpit

The Museum has recently acquired the front cockpit and cutaway engine of de Havilland Chipmunk T10 WZ876. This aircraft was built in 1952 and served with the RAF as a primary trainer until 1970. As civilian registered GBBWN, the aircraft was destroyed beyond repair in 1996 during a forced landing accident following an engine failure after take-off.

In 2002 Michael Long obtained the front cockpit and engine and over the next ten years refurbished both to a very high standard. In 2012 the Boultbee Flight Academy at Goodwood Aerodrome purchased WZ876 and used it as a systems trainer for their students converting to the Chipmunk.
