de Havilland Devon C.2

This de Havilland Devon C.2 was on display at RAF Cosford.

The De Havilland Devon was a military version of the de Havilland Dove short-haul airliner, one of Britain’s most successful post-war civil designs.

The de Havilland DH.104 Dove was a British short-haul airliner developed and manufactured by de Havilland.  The Dove was a popular aircraft and is considered to be one of Britain’s most successful postwar civil designs, in excess of 500 aircraft being manufactured between 1946 and 1967. Several military variants were operated, such as the Devon by the Royal Air Force and the Sea Devon by the Royal Navy, and the type also saw service with a number of overseas military forces.
