Aah de Havilland! at Mandeville 23-2-2020

The Hairy Mole Rat sure gets around and over last weekend he was at the Fly in and Steam Festival held at Mandeville on a lovely day on the green green grass of their home.

Here are what I reckon would be a unique in the world pairing of classic flying de Havilland biplane airliners:

DH 90A Dragonfly ZK-AYR (c/n 7508) of the Croydon Aircraft Company looking stunning.

And DH 89B Dominie ZK-AKY (c/n 6653), also of the Croydon Aircraft Company and also looking stunning.

Thanks for the great photos HMR.


  1. Has the Dragonfly been sold recently?

  2. According to the CAA register it is still listed to Croydon Aircraft as of today
