De Havilland DH.90 Dragonfly


Twin engine, five seat communication aircraft



   On 10 September 1939, the Aéronautique Militaire Belge, requisitioned De Havilland DH.90 Dragonfly OO-JFN to serve as communications aircraft ("Avion Estafette") piloted by its owner Mahieu. In September 1937 Mahieu had acquired the Dragonfly new from de Havilland and it was registered OO-JFN (c/n 7561) on 25 September 1937. Retreating with the Belgian Armed forces in May 1940 the aircraft ended up at Montpellier-Frejorgues in France where it was captured by the enemy. On 24 March 1946 the machine was removed from the Belgian civil registered as being lost during the war.   (Daniel Brackx)
