De Havilland D.H.72

Barry, 18.11.2015

They say that De Havilland never built a bad plane, but this sure comes close! Although in all fairness, whilst it was designed by D.H., with a lot of interference from the Ministry of Aviation construction was undertaken by Gloster Aircraft who had a trading agreement with De Havilland to complete their military work.
