DH DOVE DETAILS & FLEET LISTING
The de  Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British monoplane short-haul airliner from  de Havilland, the successor to the biplane de Havilland Dragon Rapide  and was one of Britain's most successful post-war civil designs. The  design came about from the Brabazon Committee report which called for a  British designed short-haul feeder for airlines. Production of the Dove  and its variants totalled 542 including 127 military Devon C.2s and 13  Sea Devons, the last example being delivered in 1967. The Dove first  flew on 25 September 1945. The first of the type to fly in Dan Air  colours in January 1960. The last flew in February 1965. Only two of the  11 seat aircraft served with the company. They were one of the few  types of aircraft that were suitable to land at one of Plymouth's grass  landing strips. Only two of the type served in Dan Air colours and they  are shown here. There are thumbnail images of all the  liveries the aircraft wore whilst with Dan Air, and in many cases, the  prior and subsequent liveries with other operators. The thumbnail images  can be enlarged by simply clicking on them.
