Ah yes - A 1950s De-Havilland Heron.
DH made a smaller two-engine version - the 'Dove' and for the Australian market a three-engine version (with engine on the nose) - the 'Drover'.
Engines were the familiar, reliable, inverted 4-cylinder 'Gypsy Major' or six-cylinder 'Gypsy Queen' - as found in Tiger Moths, Chipmunks and others, including the 'DH88 racer'.
Life was slower and less complicated back then (and probably more dangerous).
