Hawker Siddeley Trident 1C [G-ARPO]

  • Description

    c/n 2116. Built 1965. The wings and tail are currently stored nearby and the aeroplane will be reassembled when the opportunity arises and space is available. On display at the North East Land, Sea & Air Museums (NELSAM), Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, UK. 11th September 2017 The following history for G-ARPO is from the very informative NELSAM website:- “G-ARPO was the 16th Trident built. Assembled at Hatfield it first flew on 13th January 1965 and delivered to BEA on the last day of the month. Its final in service flight was on 16th March 1983 operating the Glasgow to London Heathrow shuttle. Following a short period of time in storage it was flown from Heathrow to Teeside (now Durham Tees-Valley) airport on 12th December 1983 for use at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) fire school as a fire evacuation and smoke training aid. The fire school (now Serco) kindly offered the aircraft to the ‘Save the Trident’ group and subsequently made the move to the museum, arriving in summer 2011. The group plan to restore the aircraft in the colours of Northeast Airlines who flew similar types from Newcastle and Teeside airports in the 1970’s.”
