Good Evening All.

I was unable to post to the forum for approximately half an hour, last week it was longer, so I better make hay whilst the sun shines!

Looks suspiciously like St Mary's lifeboat station Isles of Scilly.

Double triumph! Is it a tiger moth taking the shot?

Dragon Rapide's used to be used on flights to the Isles of Scilly.

However the extra wing strut doesn't match.

Possibly a DH84 Dragon.

I have done a free fall from a Rapide.You have to climb out and hang on to the lower wing and hold the strut before jumping backwards. A bit daunting....

Fairly sure that it is a Dragon. DH 84 Dragon. They were used between Lands End and the Isles of Scilly Lands End Aiport but without a good safety record.
