Chipmunk WZ877 flies again in France

The de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk WZ877 (F-AZLI) flew for the first time in La Rochelle, France, on June 23.

The aircraft had been sold from RAF stock in 1996 but had never flown again. Bought in 2010 by MM. Gilles Carter and Patrick Pierre-Pierre, pilot for the first flight, it was restored to airworthy status.

    Nice to see her back in the air again. Although she is now marked in 7 AEF markings, she did actually serve with No 6 AEF at Abingdon for a number of years. I have at least one picture in our markings!

    I flew her many times at 7 AEF newton glad to see she’s up where she belongs
