X-Plane 9.70+ de Havilland Dragon Rapide. The DeHavilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide was a 1930s British short-haul biplane passenger airliner. In late 1933, the Dragon Rapide was designed as a faster and more comfortable successor to the DH.84 Dragon. It was in effect a twin-engined, scaled-down version of the four-engined DH. 86 Express. The one presented here is a military version Dominie Mk1 delivered in 1941 and later transferred to Scottish Ailrways on 13-10-1943. Credit goes to Bernard Augras for his pilot. By Philippe Gastebois.
