    Finally got a flight in a neighbor's Chipmunk. Very original, Gypsy engine. Let me actually fly the thing from take off to landing. Nicest handling aeroplane I have ever flown and that is no exaggeration.

    That is cool. Is it a finger tip airplane. Fly with thumb and forefinger?

    Very much. Some people who have flown both,say it's second only to the Spitfire in handling.
