AIRCRAFT
HANDLEY PAGE HERALD DETAILS & FLEET LISTING

The  Handley Page Dart Herald was a 1950s British turboprop passenger  aircraft. Although only 50 of these remarkable aircraft were made. Only  one served with Dan Air. That solitary Herald served just 51 days with  the company. The aircraft was leased from British Air Ferries and  reasons for not acquiring more of them are a mystery. the aircraft  performed well and was relatively economic to run with passenger appeal.  The aircraft never wore the Dan Air Livery. Registered as G-BAVX  she  had previously been owned and operated  by British Midland Airways  before being aquired by British Air Ferries. Dan Air returned it's  solitary Herald to BAF after it's short stint. Throughout  this section of the website we have endeavoured to find a photograph of  each individual aircraft. 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.
