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.
