De Havilland DH.89A Dominie C.1
Twin-engined biplane communications- and transport aircraft
Already during the Second World War the plans for the new Belgian Air Force incorporated the use of light transport- and liaison aircraft. The De Havilland DH.89A Dominie C.1's were some of the first aircraft of the newly formed Air Force and the majority was already in service in 1945 with the (Belgian crewed) Metropolitan Communications Flight and the Belgian Training School at Snailwell (UK). In the mid fifties the last of the 7 Dominies operated by the Belgian Air Force were withdrawn from use. Some ended up on the Belgian civil market while the remainder was scrapped.
