This Dove was manufactured in 1961 and used as a company transport until August 1967. It was then sold in Ireland, becoming EI-ARV before joining the Irish Air Corps as 201. In October 1980 it came back on the UK civil register as G-ARSN again, before changing to G-LIDD in June 1983. Exported to Australia, it became VH-OBI on 30 October 1987.
Maurice Rolfe's long-awaited D.H.89A Domine/Dragon Rapide VH-UXZ 'Lady Penrhyn' made its first post-restoration flight on 28 March 2014. The aircraft was built for the RAF in 1944 as a Domine, NR713. It was later civil registered as G-AJSL. The markings recall the original VH-UXZ of ANA, cn 6365, which crashed off Flinders Island in 1943.
