Ex Royal Aircraft Establishment XW750, last flight as such 31 Jan 2005 and stored at Boscombe Down. To G-ASJT on 9 Jan 2007, then to N748D on 18 Jan 2007. Briefly served as an instructional airframe at Finningley, but flown to Southend 20 Dec 2008 for storage. This aircraft was dismantled in the summer of 2009, and on 3 Nov 2009 it was trucked away to an unknown destination, fate unclear. Shortly after this photo was taken, registration N748D was allocated to another HS748, c/n 1689.
This is the former RAAF A10-606 (note "6" still visible above the windscreen), which was withdrawn from use 30 Jun 2004. It departed Australia for Southend, UK on 27 Feb 2005 and arrived there on 3 Mar 2005. Stored at Southend until sold to the adjoining Skylark Hotel in Jul 2010. Lifted onto their site on 19 Jul 2010, together with sistership VH-AMQ (ex RAAF A10-603). By 2017 both aircraft were in a very neglected state and partly overgrown, but both were still there by Jun 2018.
In fake markings, with a serial based on the aircraft's c/n. After years of storage at Avra Valley, AZ, this aircraft was flown to North Weald in late Sep 2002, together with C-54Q N44914 seen parked behind. Both were intended for use in a movie about the Berlin Airlift, but this project was cancelled and neither aircraft flew again. N31356 was eventually broken up here 13 years later, in early Dec 2015. Its forward fuselage was trucked out to the RAF Burtonwood Heritage Centre (part of the Gulliver's World theme park) near Warrington on 9 Dec 2015. N44914 was still at North Weald by Jun 2018.
