de Havilland D.H.114 Heron  N4789C                                  (c/n  14080)


                                     This aircraft was the former G-ANYJ of UK based Dragon Airways.  Upon being sold in the
                                     US it was operated by Executive Business Transport and was on lease to the Hacienda Hotel
                                     when this shot was taken at Long Beach in April 1964.   Paint scheme was a drab gray fuselage
                                     with white top and red/orange cheat line and titling.  It was used to ferry high rollers from the
                                     Los Angeles Basin to Vegas.   Like many (if not most) of the Herons in the US it wound up in
                                     the Prinair fleet in Puerto Rico in the 1970s and was converted to a Prinair Heron.  This con-
                                     version involved , in the main, replacing the Gipsy Queen engines with Continentals.
