de Havilland Dragon Rapide

The de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide was a popular British short-haul passenger airliner designed in 1933. It was a robust and reliable airplane and out of 731 built, many are still flying today. Unfortunately not this one, it crashed on landing in the Sahara Desert, Algeria on August 24, 1960.
