ride on the de Havilland Dragon Rapide airliners which have been maintained for sight-seeing in Britain. The DR isn't as old as the Ford Tri-Motor, but is from the early '30's, covered in fabric and with wicker seats for passengers. It's a twin engined aircraft and is actually quite beautifully designed and is quite reliable. The only airline service to the Scilly Isles off the tip of Cornwall was a small group of Dragon Rapide's until the late 1970's. Nearly 50 years of service.
I'm sure there's an entry on Wikipedia There are a trio of aircraft which look very similar, the Dragon, the DR and it's Military version.
Eventually I'm going to get the kit to make a 48" Electric Powered version as advertised on Amazon.com, and pick up a radio to fly it. I need to find something to get me out of the house.
So from now on your name will be Willy Post. I hope you get the reference. (see Wiley Post on Wikipedia)
The famous "Tin Goose" flies again or the trips it provides. The 1929 tri-motor Ford airplane offers rides for those seeking some insight to travel of days past. This isn't the original tin goose that crashed yrs. ago and still being rebuild, don't left that brother you.
I hope to fly on it next year. I've got it on my bucket list. -----Willy
