Auto Credit Based on ForeverPie's Airliner Challenge!

The de Havilland Dove was a short-haul airliner that could carry between eight and eleven passengers, depending on how the cabin was configured. It first flew in 1945, and production continued until 1967. This replica flies pretty well, it has flaps controlled by the VTOL slider for easier take offs and landing.
