Please Help Us…

If you’ve got this far then I’m assuming that you would like to help me turn this website into one of the best sources for historical, Southend aviation on the web. But, before you start frantically clicking away at the back button, I’d like to assure you that I’m not going to go to such extremes as thrusting a begging bowl or anything like that under your noses. However, what this website does need more than anything else is interesting morsels of information, aircraft and airline related paraphernalia and of course, your pictures. So, whether you have just a single image or two or indeed, an entire album of them, please feel free to submit whatever you are willing to share. Any information about individual aircraft, airlines or any anecdotes/stories that you may have about the airport itself or indeed, any suggestions as to errors or omissions that you may have spotted will be more than gladly accepted too.

I’ve also realised that I’ve probably bitten off more than I can chew with a website of this scale and in some cases, you will find pages that really do need more in the way of information which in most cases, revolves around a lack of operational history for individual aircraft or background information where many of the now defunct, SEN based companies were concerned. If anyone out there can help me complete such pages, then it would be much appreciated and I will quite naturally endeavour to credit you personally.


On the pages where a picture is missing, you will see the image below:

No Pic Image

If you would like to contribute, then please do send your pictures to the email provided and we will gladly load them up! All we ask is that the minimum file resolution is 1024px (or 680px for pre 1960s photos) and that the file itself is one of the more common formats such as a JPEG, TIFF or Bitmap image.


Needless to say, as a thank you, we will be more than happy to do the following:

  • Give you full credit on the photograph itself
  • Mention you on the ‘Credits’ page
  • Provide a link to any SEN or aviation related, photo page to those who contribute 10 or more pictures or items to this site
  • Ensure that you retain complete control over your photos at all times and finally,
  • Give you our solemn promise never to use your pictures for anything but this website

So, start raiding those photo albums and those hard drives and let’s turn this resource into a virtual museum that we can all be proud of!

Many thanks,

Nick (SAAD Admin)
