About a picture in Fred Turner’s collection

1941 03 D.H. Rapide, Dragonfly Summerside PEI

John Clarke commented on a photo in Fred Turner’s collection.

The aircraft named DH Rapide, in the Summerside collection, is, in fact, a DH Dragonfly. From Wikipedia “Seven airframes were shipped to Canada, and erected by de Havilland Canada, where they served a variety of small commercial operators, the R.C.M.P. and two with the R.C.A.F. At least one, CF-BFF, was fitted with Edo floats, and used commercially.”
