2017 Trident Opening Dates Announced

We’re excited to be heading towards the 2017 season when we’ll be opening up our Trident, G-ARPO, regularly for visitors to the museum to enjoy.

Because we have a limited number of volunteers, we are not able to open as often as we would like. Please do get in touch if you think you could help out on occasional days with showing people around our aircraft!

We will commence opening in April, ending in October. If you are coming to the museum on a particular day and would like to visit the Trident, please get in touch and we may be able to open it for you!

    Congratulations on the restoration of an important part of British aviation history. Being under the approach to Hatfield, I was able to watch most Tridents being built before I immigrated to Australia in 1972. One of the important items on my bucket list is to see your restored aircraft. I hope to be one of the first passengers on the inaugural Perth – London direct flights in March next year. So, if you are open then, I’d love to drop by and see this wonderful aircraft.
    Best wishes

    Hi I worked on all the Tridents as a sheet metal worker , and was pleased to see the forward nose fairing intact on the top of the tail, as I made all of them, among many other small items. Good luck with your restoration

    Thanks Martin, that’s great! It’ll be back attached to the fuselage as soon as we can!
