View Full Version : HS 748 memorabilia

20th Jan 2010, 08:30
Hi All,

I worked for International Air Parts/Horizon Airlines in Australia operating HS748 freighters and passenger charter. When the airline went into administration the aircraft were cut up and sold for spare parts and scrap metal. I didn't get the chance to get a piece of memorabilia of the aircraft that are a particularly sentimental favourite of my family and I.

I am trying to locate some part of the aircraft that I can have made into a piece of memorabilia. Quite a few of the aircraft were ex Raaf training aircraft as well. If anyone knows where I can find something please let me know...

Try going onto Yahoo spotters SEN airport UK. There are a number in storage there and 2 x Janes aviation that were airworthy some time ago and are still resident on the main apron. I am sure that 1 X RAAF has been cut up in the last 6 months. Somebody might be able to help you?

I'm pretty sure the noise they made is still echoing around the Earth, decades later.

Thanks, yes they were noisy and rather slow but still a lovely old aircraft. If anyone else has any suggestions please post to let me know....
