This DH.104 Dove and Devon collection for FSX and P3D includes five variants in a total of six liveries, with analogue and modern digital avionics options.
A direct descendant of the famous 'Wooden Wonder', de Havilland's Mosquito fighter/bomber, the Dove was developed by the same designer, R. E. Bishop,
who was also responsible for the DH Comet racer and the awesome Comet jet airliner.
An all-metal monoplane design, the aircraft was built as a short-haul passenger and executive transport to replace the successful Dragon Rapide biplane.
The Dove first flew on September 25, 1945. An immediate success, many Doves were sold from 1946 on with Argentina placing orders for 70 examples.
An initial 30 examples were delivered to the Royal Air Force, suitably converted and equipped as light transports.
Named the 'Devon', the Royal Navy also operated them as transport and liaison aircraft.
The Royal New Zealand Air Force operated modified Devons for many years, in fact right up to the 1970s where they were used as training machines.
Scores of airlines large and small have operated Doves on short-haul routes and executive transport duties.
Many flying on with new owners, well into the late 90s. Restored examples make popular tourist attractions for air show rides and several examples travel the world today as flying museum pieces.
