Southend Airport, UK (EGMC) - July 2002

It took me a few wrong turns and long walks through fields before I realised that I needed to walk across the golf course to get near the Short SC.5 Belfast that is stored and maybe soon to be scrapped.

Only 10 of these machines were built - one is in Australia and airworthy and working and another example is preserved at Cosford under cover. That's it!

The BAC1-11 used by the fire service is ex 5N-HHH and wears fictitious registration G-FIRE - I wonder how long it took them to come up with that?
