De Havilland

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of de Havilland, Key.Aero is launching a special week of bespoke videos on September 21 that pays homage to a true aviation pioneer. From the humble beginnings of the Humming Bird and the ground-breaking Hornet Moth, through to the staggering engineering of the DH88 Comet and mighty Mosquito, this video series charts both the aircraft and the fascinating details that form the history of one of Britain's most iconic aircraft manufacturers.
