Manywas
the
manufacturer
whotried their
hand
at
a
DC-3
replacement.
Of
course,nothing
ever
truly
succeeded
the
Douglas
classic,
but
the 748 did
better
than
many.
It
started
as
an
Avro
product,the
first
Avro 748Series
I
(G-APZVshown

with
second
prototype
G-ARAY)flyingon

I
960,
and service
entry
soon
followedwith
Skyways.
Productionswitched
in
196
I to
the
Series
2,
and
that
was
when the
twin
Rolls-Royce
Dart-engined
turboprop
regional
airliner really'took
off'.
Known
from
1963
onwards
as
the
HS748,and
still
later
as
the
BAe
748,380
endedup
being
produced
both
in
Britain and
by
HAL
in
lndia.
lts most
successful
derivative
was
ofcourse
the Andover,
with
its
'kneeling'undercarriageand
re-designed
rear
fuselage
incorporating
a loadingramp,
of which
37
were
built.
Today,
the
748
can
still
be
foundin service in
small
numbers
with
variousoperators
worldwide,
mainly
asa
freighter,continuing
the
life of
this
unassuming
British
success
scory.
