Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Franks Factory Flooring back to our Trident to lay carpets in the rear cabin.

We’ve had very generous sponsorship today from the manager of the Holiday Inn Solstice Park at Amesbury, who has agreed to provide free accommodation for a night when our team visit Boscombe Down in June. This very generous offer is very much appreciated, and we didn’t expect to be able to stay in such nice accommodation on our trip to recover parts which will be useful for the restoration of Trident G-ARPO.
