De HAVILLAND DH104 DOVE

$9.95

Titles: De Havilland DH104 Dove No’s 1 and 2

The De Havilland Dove was designed to a specification produced by the Brabrazon committee for a short-haul  feeder airliner, and first flew in September 1945. The aircraft was the natural successor to the earlier DH89 Dragon Rapide aircraft and proved one of Britains most successful post-war civil airliners. 528 examples were eventually built, comprising 388 civil aircraft and 140 military variants (known as the Devon). Several companies later offered modifications to improve the aircraft’s performance, including replacing the De Havilland Gipsy engines.

We offer two titles, one covering the military Devon variants, and one covering the civil variants. The civil title includes a flight manual and a brochure for the Riley Dove, a modified Dove using Lycoming engines and a new swept fin. Most civil and military variants are included in the two titles, which have been scanned from the
original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
