History:
About the Plane:
The Hawker Siddeley HS 748 is a medium-sized turboprop airliner originally designed and initially produced by the British aircraft manufacturer Avro. It was the last aircraft to be developed by Avro prior to its dissolution. The HS 748 was developed during the late 1950s as a move to re-orientate the company towards the civil and export markets. Originally intended to seat a smaller number of passengers, market research indicated that a seating capacity of around 40 passengers would be optimal for the type. It was designed to possess a high level of performance, including its short takeoff and landing and overall ruggedness.

About the Site:
The exact reason as to why the planes are here is unknown. They don't appear to have crash-landed as the bodywork on the larger planes seems almost undamaged. They are however decaying and rusting and have been targeted by vandals with spray paint.

We could only explore one plane however this was a first for me so I was so excited on this explore. This was also my first explore in Essex to! This was my first ever abandoned aircraft - and I actually really enjoyed myself here. It’s only a couple of planes left but it was really fun. I definitely prefer the exteriors more than inside the planes as inside the planes have been ripped out. Nonetheless a really interesting explore! On with the photos:
