DeHavilland Dh114 Heron

Launched in 1950, the De Havilland DH114 Heron emerged as a compact, propeller-driven airliner, succeeding the DH104 Dove. De Havilland’s objective was to develop an economical and easily maintainable aircraft in the aftermath of World War II. The new plane drew inspiration from the Dove, sharing numerous traits with its forerunner. De Havilland elongated the Dove’s fuselage and incorporated two additional engines mounted on the wings. The resulting aircraft was christened the DH114 Heron, with the intention of catering to the regional and commuter airline market. The DH114 Heron garnered positive feedback, owing to its capacious interior suitable for civil transport or adaptable for freight transport. The extra engines provided passengers with added assurance during their travels.
