Trident Ditching Trials Video

During the development of the Hawker Siddeley Trident, a series of trials were conducted to investigate how the aircraft would perform in a ditching scenario.

Now, a rare video has emerged which was created from the still photographs taken as the model Trident was launched to simulate landing on water.

We’ve got the video for you here to enjoy.

Thankfully no Trident ever had to ditch on water, so we don’t know if the results of the trials were correct!
