Repaint of vampupxa.zip of Langley Museum Enclosed is a repaint to attempt to reflect DH-100 Vampire currently in Canadian Museum of Flight, Langley, BC collection by Josef of FSXTipline.blogspot.com.

Canadian Museum of Flight, Langley, WA by Josef K (josefk@wavecable.com) repaint of Bob Chicilo's vampupxa.zip using some help from Ed DesRoches' repaint of FS2004/2002 RCAF DeHavilland DH-100 Vampire 17071 for the City of Vancouver Squadron. The aircraft is meant to reflect to the best of my ability - and I'm still not happy several weeks after embarking on this project - the DH-100 Vampire in the collection of the Canadian Museum of Flight, Langley, BC.

description =Vampire F3 De Havilland DH-100 Vampire.nThe Vampire first flew in september 1943 from Hatfield, England, piloted by Geoffrey de Havilland Jr and using the underpowered Halford H.1 engine developed by F. Halford. The first Vampire model, F.1, entered service, in the Royal Air Force, in late 1945, too late to partecipate in the World War Two. The plane underwent rapid development and equipped many squadrons of many Air Forces over all the world primarly in the fighter-bomber role. In this it was highly capable.

Background: The War Years
On arrival at Digby in February 1944 for service in Europe, No. 14 Squadron, RCAF was renumbered as No. 442. In March it moved to Holmesley South, exchanging its initial Spitfire Mk VB's for Spitfire Mk IXB's and becoming part of No. 144 Wing, 2nd TAF (Tactical Air Force). Operations over Europe commenced at once, several airfields along the south coast being used, the wing flying from From from mid May until the 15th of June, when it moved to Normandy at St. Croix-sur-Mer. Air superiority patrols contained with some success until mid July, when the wing was disbanded and the unit moved to 126 Wing. There was little change to the form of operations undertaken and in September the wing moved forward to Evere in Belgium, where Spitfire Mk IXE's replace the Mk IXB's. October saw a move to Holland, but in March 1945 the Squadron returned to the UK, re-equipping with the North American Mustang Mk III at Hunsdon and commencing bomber escort sorties over Germany, claiming several aerial victories late in the war to raise the unit's total to 53 victories. During this period the Squadrons' aircraft carried the unit code Y2.
