Jump Seat and Catering Trolley Additions

We’ve recently added two new items to our Trident interior thanks to a loan from the de Havilland Aircraft Museum. Our cockpit now sports a jump seat, whilst the galley has its very own catering trolley. Both of these items are authentic Trident parts which flew on actual aircraft – maybe even G-ARPO!  They now have pride of place and make our exhibit even more interesting to visitors and Trident fans. We’d like to thank Alistair and Les at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum at London Colney (www.dehavillandmuseum.co.uk) for the kind loan of these parts, helping to...

G-ARPO Log Books Updated

We’ve continued to receive a lot of log book details from the pilots we have made contact with who flew our Trident, G-ARPO when it was in active service. This is a really interesting part of what we’re doing to restore the aircraft, uncovering details of its life between 1965 and 1983.  The log books tell us where the aircraft flew, and which pilots were at the helm. To date we’ve received logs from 300 pilots who all flew G-ARPO. This is a real achievement and we’re very pleased to have reached this milestone. If you look at our logs, you will see thousands of...

Trident Cockpit Display Cabinet Finished

We put the finishing touches to the Trident cockpit display cabinet at the museum last weekend. This cabinet has the complete cockpit dashboard of former Trident 2E G-AVFG, which is kindly on loan to us to display inside the hangar at the North East Land, Sea and Air Museum. Now, thanks to help from our friends at Sticker Shop 103, we’ve adorned it with authentic logos from British European Airways and British Airways from the era that the Trident flew.   If you visit the museum, you’ll find this display inside the main aircraft hangar, on the rear wall.  ...

End of Summer Cleaning

End of Summer Cleaning

It’s been a year since we last cleaned our Trident’s fuselage exterior, so this weekend, with the help of Warren Access, we gave the aircraft a wash. The position of the fuselage means it is prone to dirt building up particularly on one side of the fuselage, so with the appropriate industrial cleaning liquid, we used the access platform kindly provided by Warren Access we carefully removed it, leaving G-ARPO shining again. Warren Access are a specialist provider of access platforms, with bases in Newcastle and Huntingdon, and have long been supporters of our project since...
