G-ARPO to Feature on CBeebies!


Our Trident, G-ARPO, will again feature on TV next week as it took part in a new episode of the CBeebies “My First” series.

In it, a father will take his son to an air show for the first time. Here’s the synopsis:

Join Jesse as he goes to an air show for the first time. Jesse is making paper aeroplanes with his family when Dad tells him they are going to an air show. First, Jesse and his family go to an air museum where they learn about different kinds of aircraft and what they’re used for. Jesse gets to see all kinds of aeroplanes and tries flying a helicopter. At the air show Jesse watches the plane displays and explores the stalls. The Red Arrows display team close the show with their exciting manoeuvres.


Filming was done on board our Trident, and in other parts of the NELSAM museum for the show, and we’re really excited to see it.

The show will be aired on CBeebies channel at 5.35pm on Monday 12th March.
