    i payed a flying visit (no pun intended) to this site back in 2010 with kevsy21 on our way back from another explore, 2 yrs on i decided to have a proper look around whilst in the area.

    at the back of the old liverpool airport, now the crown plaza hotel lies a whole host of plane stuff ,some looks like it used to belong to the new airport including an old secca car by the looks of it, various signage,plane tugs,a fighter jet in 3 pieces and various turbine engines, along with other aircraft.

    a group called the Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group currently owns all of it and are trying to restore what they can.

    the old Bristol 175 Britannia 308F still remains with little work been done since the last time i saw it also the British Aerospace Jetstream 41 (now converted into a flight sim) are still here along with the Percival P-50 Prince 6E.

    all plane information is taken from www.airliners.net

    explored solo ,even managed a bonus explore on the roof of the hotel.


    Bristol 175 Britannia 308F

    Gloster Meteor F8
    Having been on display at Lasham for a number of years, the museum closed so Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group split her in to three sections and brought her to the old Liverpool Airport apron. The aircraft is currently in three parts but will be put back together in the near future.

    Avro 748 Srs1/105
    'Sisyphus' now lies on the old Liverpool Airport apron after being rescued by Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group, with generous donations from aircraft enthusiasts (£2,500). The aircraft was stood rotting in Blackpool for 5 years following the demise of Emerald Airways, and was on the brink of scrapping, until it was rescued. This is an important aircraft as it's a rare Mk1 Avro 748. It'll be restored and displayed for future generations.
