    Hello at the new Forum! I am researching the De Havilland 6. Looking for any technical information – factory drawings, plans, manuals, etc. Discovering the great articles by P. Vann and Bruce Robertson regarding the airplane. Do you know where their collections are at the moment, are they accessible ??? Any help or directions? The D.H.6 was manufactured by seven additional contractors. The total is: Grahame-White: 750; Aircraft Mfg. Co.: 602; Ransomes, Sims & Jeffries: 250; Morgan: 200; Gloucester: 150; Kingsbury: 150; Harland & Wolff: 100; Savages: 100; Canadian Aeroplanes: 1.

    Is anyone have come across a kind of archive from some of the companies above? Thanks in advance! Peter – [email protected], 416 789 5858.

    Hi Peter
    I don’t know what happened to Bruce Robertson’s archive – he must have had a huge amount of material!
    Ray Vann is still in touch and keen on our subject, though not as active as he used to be!
    A quick internet search shows that Shuttleworth have an item in their library titled:
    Drawings: Airco DH6 by Airco
