De Havilland DH91 'Albatross' (1938). Also known as the Imperial Airways 'Frobisher' class, and associated with the flamboyant Captain O.P. Jones. It was a strikingly pretty airliner, and one of the last of wooden construction. It used air-cooled engines which allowed for very slender engine housings. Seven of these planes were built; two mailplanes, and five passenger planes. None survive today.
