De Havilland DH 90A Dragonfly Military Transport

The de Havilland DH.90 Dragonfly Light Transport aircraft was effectively a de Havilland DH.89 re-designed from the ground up incorporating the lessons learned from building the record breaking de Havilland DH.88 Comet racer, it was more compact, faster, had greater range and looked modern! Whilst the DH.90 Dragonfly was not designed for the RAF, The outbreak of WW2 resulted in 23 Dragonflies being impressed into RAF service, unfortunately only six of these de Havilland DH.90 Dragonflys were destined to survive WW2.
