A view from the wing

Here’s a photo we just came across showing the view over the wing of a Trident at an airport in the early 1970s.

But look a little closer… you’ll see that the registration painted on the wing of that Trident is G-ARPO – our very own aircraft!

We love to see picture of G-ARPO in service, so if you have any in your collection please send them to us!


  1. Fantastic scene. Any idea where it was taken? Looks like the KLM DC-9 wasn’t on a short turn, given the engine covers in place.

  2. Not sure which airport Ian. Answers on a postcard, everyone!
