Artist's Description

A once familiar sight in the skies above Europe, the Hawker Siddeley Trident was the flagship of British European Airways, bringing speed, comfort and reliability to the new jet age. The Trident is most notable however for pioneering the automatic landing system that we take for granted today, being able to perform a near zero visibility landing while other aircraft would be grounded.

The Trident, though endearing, was sadly too complex for the needs of most airlines, with the more simplistic ‘barn door’ approach of the Boeing 727 and the Douglas DC-9 being more to their liking. As such, the Trident never saw widespread distribution and sales, with pretty much all examples being retired by the end of the 1980’s.
