The de Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British short-haul airliner. It was a monoplane successor to the prewar Dragon Rapide biplane.
The Dove was a popular aircraft and is considered to be one of Britain’s most successful postwar civil designs, in excess of 500 aircraft being manufactured between 1946 and 1967.
Several military variants were operated, such as the Devon by the RAF, the Sea Devon by the Royal Navy and the type also saw service with a number of overseas military forces.
We’ve used one twice now, once simulating some severe turbulence which was a bit of a wild ride! Like most of the aircraft we’ve used we’ve put some paint on it to take it in and out of civilian / military roles. For more details then give us a call.
