Belgian DH 9
De Havilland DH9 finally finished.
During the first war, Belgium received at least twenty DH9s from Great Britain and in 1922-23, the Sabca produced around thirty. It is one of the latter which I am giving here an interpretation, representative of the 1st Mephisto squadron (Evere Circa, 1925). The D51 crashed near Gossoncourt in February 1930, injuring its pilot.
