De Havilland DH 84 Dragon.

I've posted one of these in the Members Models section as well. They're photos of a beautiful pristine Dragon which sadly is no longer with us. She crashed in south eastern QLD on 1st October 2012 killing her owner, his wife and four of their good friends. The owner's father walked away from a crash landing in this aeroplane at Archerfield in 1954 and the owner at age 10 years walked away from the fatal crash of another of his father's Dragons which in 1956 killed his father and his older brother. These were taken at Festival of Flight at Watts Bridge in August 2008.

Unfortunately it didn't look anything like this when I last saw it on a peak near Gympie... :(

No Rob. Sadly not. And I can't see her being rebuilt again. :cry:
