DeHavilland DH-89B Dominie
The prototype of the DH-89 made its maiden flight on 17 April 1934. The aircraft was initially designated Dragon Six, but soon the name was changed in Dragon Rapide. The aircraft was used as a small airliner before world war two. It could carry six passengers.
When the second world war started, the RAF made several orders and used the Dragon Rapide under the designation DH-89B Dominie for liaison purposes and for navigation training.
