  • The Dragon Rapide revisited

    2 September 2007
    Imperial War Museum Duxford
    Sat in last row of seats next to Door.
    De Havilland DH 89 Dragon Rapide G-AIYR

    I flew on this aircraft two years ago.

    Since I was at Duxford again I flew on it again.

    It was a bit warm in the aircraft until we took off. Take off was smooth from the runway.

    Flight was fairly smooth with a little turbulence. We flew in a big circuit over the museum and the surrounding area. It was quite noisy in the aircraft.

    Landing was bumpy on the grass and most of the passengers onboard clapped, but the landing was not that bad. Maybe if we were flying Aeroflot it might be worth clapping.
