DH.84 Dragon

DH.84 Dragon

The DH.84 Dragon was a design driven by the commercial operator of a DH.83 Fox Moth who saw that with the addition of a second Gipsy Major engine, twice the load could be carried, still flown by a single pilot. The prototype DH.84 completed her maiden flight in the hands of Hubert Broad from Stag Lane Aerodrome on 24 November 1932 and the type was used extensively to open domestic air services, especially in remote areas of the British Isles. The Dragon went into production at Hatfield and with the Associated company at Mascot in Australia.
