de Havilland D.H.82B Queen Bee

The De Havilland D.H.82B Queen Bee was created in response to the 18/33 specifications, which required a radio-controlled drone to serve as a target for anti-aircraft artillery training. In fact, it was a combination of DH60GIII Gipsy Moth and DH82A - wooden (and therefore cheaper) fuselage corresponded to DH60, but the wings were from Tiger Moth. Compared to both, it had a larger volume of fuel tank, the rear cockpit was covered (radio equipment was located here), on the left side of the fuselage was located a wind-powered generator. The first prototype took off on January 5, 1935, but manned (the front cockpit remained with all machines), based on specifications 20/35, the first 320-piece series was built. The wheeled chassis was used only for tests or transport, during the artillery exercises themselves usually had short floats and took off with a catapult from the deck of a British Navy ship. In the event of an impact, the plane fell into the sea, where there was no danger of hitting anyone.
In March 1937 she was at No. 1 The Anti-Aircraft Co-Operation Unit in Henlow created Queen Bee Flight and the first takeoff of their Queen Bee took place after moving to Watchett on July 27. Between 19 October 1943 and 30 September 1944, a second series of 60 pieces was built at Scottish Aviation in Glasgow. Previously, seven terraced Tiger Moths were also rebuilt on Queen Bee. From October 1942 Queen Bee flew with squadrons T to Z No.1 AACU, No. 2 AACU in Gosport (also serving the needs of the Navy), No. 3 AACU in Hal Far, Malta and No. 4. AACU in Singapore. Many of the pieces were stored at the Pilotless Aircraft Unit in Manorbier, from where the remaining pieces were also discarded at the end of 1946, 22 sold to Rollanson Aircraft Ltd, and 21 others to various other private parties. Most served as a source of spare parts for Tiger Mothy, but one should still be airworthy.
