In real life, this attractively decorated Dragon Rapide has been a 30 year restoration project by enthusiast Ralph Jones, whose efforts attracted sufficient attention to enlist more help in the later stages. The DH89A was originally manufactured in 1944 as a DH89B Dominie (military) version of the Rapide but never took up her military duties. After a varied and chequered career with a number of owners, G-AHAG was saved at the last minute from a bonfire by Bryan Neely who repainted the aircraft in his Scillonia Airways fleet colours of pale green and white and gave her the name ‘Bryher’ after one of the Scilly Isles. G-AHAG was a familiar sight over south west England for several years flying passenger services and pleasure flights. However, Scillonia Airways ceased operations in 1969 and ‘Bryher’ was sold to the Army Parachuting Association for £205 who used her for training purposes. However, following an incident when she was rammed on the ground by a Cessna, she fell into disrepair until rescued in 1979. Now restored to her former glory, G-AHAG is seen at air displays and a small number of public pleasure flying days across the country.
Our model is decorated as owned by Scillonia Airways with upper fuselage, wing roots and tail surfaces in off white and lower fuselage, wings, wheels, engine nacelles and struts in pale green. The Scillonia Airways logo runs along both sides of the fuselage in red and the aircraft lettering, also in red, appears on the lower wing and tailfins. A special feature comprises the generator wind-mill fixed on the upper right wing.
