De Havilland Canada DHC-1B-2-S5 Chipmunk - Untitled

Crossing the frozen Ottawa River just west of Ottawa on a rather cold winter's day. The Canadian Chipmunk has a state-of-the-art cockpit heater for its era (rudimentary) and is quite comfortable down to outside air temperatures of minus 15 degress Centigrade or so, especially on sunny days with radiant heating through the bubble canopy. The rear cockpit is not as warm as the front, however, and on really cold days an hour or so in the back is quite enough!
