CF-CXE  de Havilland Canada DHC-1B-2-3S Chipmunk T. Mk 2       (c/n 105-143)


                                            The CF-CX- and CF-CY- series was allocated to a batch of  bubble-canopied, Canadian built
                                            DHC-1Bs which were purchased by the RCAF and loaned to Royal Canadian Flying Clubs for
                                            refresher training of service pilots.  From c/n 63 DHC adopted a double c/n series to denote a
                                            standard model with GM 145 engine which has caused identity problems ever since - the RCAF
                                            called the suffix series ' the RCAF number' at one time.  Hence 63-101 goes through to 217-255.
CF-CXE was on loan to the Windsor (Ontario) Flying Club when photographed by Brian Baker
                                            back in the early 1950s.  It was released to private ownership in British Columbia in the mid 1970s,
                                            and was last noted on the register in 1981.
