We were watching the movie "A Good Woman" and this plane appeared at the end of the movie.
The movie is set on the 1930's on Amalfi in Italy and I am very curious to know if is a real plane then the type of aircraft and manufacturer or if is just a Hollywood creation.

I took some pictures to the screen (click to enlarge):

Pretty cool... Thanks!

I am glad to know that they still fly and they seem in great shape.. what would be the range of this plane and also, it was ever part of a commercial airline?

They served with several airlines including Swissair. They also served in the RAF.

Yeah I found that its range is about 900kms and also called DE HAVILLAND DH 89 DOMINIE and it was used by General Franco to escape to Morocco on when the civil war started. It was used basically by the military but also some airlines...



I learned something new today.. Thanks guys!

An integral part of flying activities at Duxford is pleasure flying! The Classic Wings Dragon Rapide of is one of the best-loved pre-war aircraft and one of the first commercial airliners. Classic Wings operates two of the very few still flying - meticulously restored to comply with modern regulations, they seat eight passengers in a style few air travellers can remember!

Classic Wings operates pleasure flights every weekend from March to October and most weekdays during the summer.

Great wasn't it... taking off from the grass runway and all. I took my ride in 2002 right after Farnborough. I was lucky that day as the B-17 "Sally-B" fired up and took off just before us. Very memorable day spent there...  Smile

Was it called the Dragon Rapide because it looks like a dragonfly? I mean, it really does...

You can find one or two flying in New Zealand too.
At the Airshow in April, Wings Over Wanaka, there was one flying.
They told of a sad story of a flight in a Rapide that disappeared in Cook Sound -
I believe, a long time ago. Has had a book written about it but
no trace ever found. Maybe the 1950's ? Well known pilot and amoung the
passengers was a honeymoon couple.
Very beautiful airplane. Wood construction.

My first flight was in a DH89 of BEA in 1952 from Liverpool to Guernsey - overload from the normal DC3 service. In the 1960s I flew a number of times out of Liverpool in G-ANZP which is now on display at the front door of the old Liverpool terminal building - now a hotel.
