The De Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British short-haul airliner developed and manufactured by De Havilland. It was a monoplane successor to the pre-war Dragon Rapide and took its first flight in September 1945, going into production a year later. Between then and the end of production in 1967, just under 550 were built. The Dove was one of the most successful post-war civil aircraft and proved popular as a commuter plane, carrying between 8 and 11 passengers. It was also used as a short-haul feeder aircraft for the major airlines. The subject of this model, was a Mk1 aircraft benefiting from upgraded power comprising 2 x 380hp Gipsy Queen 70-2 piston engines. Dan-Air was absorbed into British Airways in 1992.

Identified as the G-AIWF, was a commuter plane and comes with a white upper fuselage with the remaining body in silver with red markings, as operated by Dan-Air London. The Dan-Air flag and compass logo decorates the left and right hand side of the tailfin/rudder. The interior features red passenger seats and grey cockpit and instrument panel. A finishing touch of red has been applied to the propeller spinner and the engine sides. Our model comes with a most informative legend detailing the De Havilland legacy. The company was at the forefront of British aviation for decades, designing and manufacturing some of the most iconic aircraft in aviation history.
