This a couple of DeHavilland DH-89a Dominaes flying somewhere over Northern England. I have added passengers and pilot as a modern day excursion. I gave this a subdue painted effect using GIMP and VUE.
The Dominie was built in the United Kingdom as a military version of the DH 89 Dragon Rapide, an eight-passenger civilian light transport. The DH 89 was first flown in 1934, and by the time production ended about 10 years later, 728 of the small biplane transports had been built. More than 530 Dominies were produced for the Royal Air Force and used in communications, transport and training roles. Six were turned over to the USAAF's Eighth Air Force between 1942 and 1944. They were used primarily by the 27th Transport Group. As far as is known, all Dominies flown by Americans carried RAF serial numbers and no USAAF serial numbers were assigned.
