    Thanks to the prevailing winds, balloonists taking off from London in the 19th century would often find themselves landing in Essex fields and as the interest in aviation blossomed, landing grounds for aeronautical experiments were established in the county. This history traces the development of flying in Essex from these beginnings to the major aircraft production of the Handley Page and Avro companies and the fighter stations of the Second World War.
