The de Havilland DH104 Dove, a British short-haul airliner constructed entirely of metal, was introduced in the late 1940s as the successor to the Dragon Rapide. The development of this new design stemmed from the Brabazon Committee report, which indicated a demand for a British-designed Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) aircraft. The DH104 Dove’s concept aimed to compete with surplus military transport aircraft that proliferated after the conclusion of the Second World War. Equipped with innovations of its time, such as constant-speed propellers, flaps, and a retractable tricycle landing gear, the DH104 Dove represented a technological advancement.
Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power equipment designed for the De Havilland DH104 Dove aircraft. Our offerings include tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, meticulously tailored to meet the specific requirements of these aircraft.
Among our offerings is the 709 tug, and the RBPS25 continuous power unit. The RBPS25 is particularly well-suited for diagnostic tasks, pre-flight checks, or continuous powering of equipment during operations, all without depleting the onboard aircraft batteries.
