Restored de Havilland D.H. 89A "Dominie"


My Golden Age of Flight desktop calendar has, for January 1/2, 2011, a photo of a Restored de Havilland D.H. 89A "Dominie".

Here's the description:

This magnificent de Havilland D.H. 89A "Dominie" was restored by the Croydon Aircraft Company, New Zealand's premier restorer of de Havilland aircraft. The prototype's first fight was April 17, 1934. This Dominie has a top speed of more than 150 mph and is powered by de Havilland Gypsy Queen engines.

The above photo is from: http://www.fleetairarmarchive.net/aircraft/Dominie.html. Since its painted in the same colors as the photo in my calendar, I'm going to assume it's the same aircraft.
