What a unique aircraft.

Sad to see those parked airliners in the background.
Paul Wisgerhof
This was the first British built short haul transport after WWII. Most of the ones exported to the U.S. were used a corporate transports.

DeHavilland DH104 Dove.

A great and interesting photo. While so many airliners are grounded, the commuters can carry on. Also note RR on the nacelles, so yet another Dove conversion.
Gordon Hearn
The Dove was withdrawn from service in the 1970s(?) due to end-of-life issues with the timber-glue construction of the wings. Obviously some were re-winged, parhaps as part of the RR conversion?
Gavin Hughes
There were many Riley conversions and they used Lycoming engines, some turbo charged. Some aircraft had modified tails and rudders, but no mention of re-winging. I have a photo of one of the Riley conversions parked at Adelaide Airport, Sth Australia, in 1985. I BELIEVE it was in use, but I'll stand corrected on that as I never saw it in the air.

Gordon I think you are thinking of the Anson The dove has metal spars
Charles Broadhurst
Whilst there are glued components in the Dove the wing is metal, not wood.
This is not a Riley Conversion. G-OPLC still has DH Gipsy Queen 70s (Check G-INFO) - and they sound beautiful!

The "RR" badge on the cowling is because Rolls Royce (Small Engine Division) took over the Type Certificate some years ago. I do not know if that is still the case.

The only Dove with a full civil transport licence, and fairly frequently seen out and about on special charters. Orginally an RAF Devon C.2 VP962.

Now I know where Air Canada is hiding some of their jets!
Gordon Hearn
Yes, you're right Mel, memory playing tricks. The Ansons were grounded in 1962 in Australia.

My first air brakes experience... no air no stairibg.
Richard Bond
The FBO at PSF had 2 Doves to fly commuters from PSF to LGA and return in the late 1960’s. If my memory is any good, one crashed on landing at LGA.

Sandy Falconer used to have two of these sitting at his Air Repair shop at Lampson field(1O2)back in the day. i got to hang out inside them. what well designed bird.
Charlie Gibbs
A Dove (with Gipsy Queen engines) has been sitting on the ground at Chilliwack, B.C. (CYCW) for many years. I don't know whether it's still there, but I doubt it's still airworthy.
