Museum of Flight, East Fortune
- De Havilland Dove 6
The de Havilland Dove short-haul airliner first flew in 1945 (as a successor to the bi-plane De Havilland Dragon Rapide) and was one of Britain's most successful post-war civil designs. 542 civil Doves and military Devon/Sea Devon versions were built.
G-ANOV was used by the British Civil Aviation Authority for airfield systems calibration trials and aircrew licence testing. It was donated to the Museum of Flight in 1978.
