Title: De Havilland DH84 Dragon

The De Havilland DH84 was a twin-engined larger version of the earlier DH83 Fox Moth and used similar outer wing sections. It first flew in 1932, and 115 had been produced when it was replaced on the De Havilland production line by the more powerful and elegant DH89 Dragon Rapide.

Production re-started in Australia during WW2 as a trainer for the RAAF, it being selected as it used the same engine as the DH82 Tiger Moth, which was also in production in Australia, and a further 87 were built.
