Titles: De Havilland DH114 Heron Nos 1 and 2

A development of the earlier DH104 Dove with a lengthened fuselage and two more engines was called the DH114 Heron. The aircraft was designed for rugged simplicity and had a fixed undercarriage and reliable unsupercharged engines. It first flew in May 1950 and a total of 150 were built, with examples being exported to 30 countries. The Mk 2 version introduced retractable undercarriage but the performance remained unspectacular and a number of aircraft were later modified by third party companies with more powerful engines. A more radical transformation with twin turbine powerplants was carried out on a small number of aircraft by one Canadian company.

We offer two titles for the De Havilland Heron, which includes pilot’s flight manuals for most civil and military variants of the De Havilland Heron along with two manufacturer’s brochures. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
