Wright Airlines  de Havilland DH-114 Riley Heron                  (c/n 14064)


                                  Wright Airlines was formed at Cleveland's Burke Lakefront Airport in 1966 and began scheduled
                                  commuter services between Cleveland and Detroit City Airport.   It was one of the very few airlines
                                  of the world to operate de Havilland Herons.  Wright's of course, had received the Riley Aeronautics
                                  Corporation conversion treatment which had re-engined them with 290 hp Lycoming IO-540s. Five
                                  of these diminutive four-engined craft (ex Heron 2Bs) were operated of which N508FW is seen above
