The De Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British short-haul airliner developed and manufactured by De Havilland. It was a monoplane successor to the pre-war Dragon Rapide and took its first flight in September 1945, going into production a year later. Between then and the end of production in 1967, just under 550 were built. The Dove was one of the most successful post-war civil aircraft and proved popular as a commuter plane, carrying between 8 and 11 passengers. It was also used as a short-haul feeder aircraft for the major airlines. The subject of this model, was a Mk1 aircraft benefiting from upgraded power comprising 2 x 380hp Gipsy Queen 70-2 piston engines. Dan-Air was absorbed into British Airways in 1992.

The Dan-Air flag and compass logo decorates the left and right hand side of the tailfin/rudder. The interior features red passenger seats and grey cockpit and instrument panel. A finishing touch of red has been applied to the propeller spinner and the engine sides.
