Synopsis: The Dornier/De Havilland Canada DDH 431 Hannibal was an attempt to produce an STOL transport for European markets using the expertise of De Havilland in STOL and Dornier's own work on VTOL. Only one prototype was produced.

The Hannibal is a blend of the Dornier Do 31 VTOL and the De Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou. The panelling was altered and recreated in some places.
