Trident Update May 2016

A great deal has happened with the Trident project in the last few months.

We have created a display of BEA and British Airways Trident related items in the galley. These along with other display items, such as booklets, uniforms and menus, are changed every few weeks.

Items of a technical nature are the black boxes, they are orange, but were black until 1964, these are a cockpit voice recorder and a flight data recorder.

Behind the black boxes is a great photo of a Trident 2 at RAF Lossiemouth in the snow, which was donated by Mr Peter Lewis, an an ex Trident pilot who flew G-AWZU many times 

If you plan to visit the Trident you will need a timed ticket, which can be obtained from the ticket desk in the main museum hall. 

Please allow  30 minutes for your visit as included is a short film about the Trident and Smiths Industries role in the development of the automatic landing systems.  You can visit to the flight  deck and enjoy a talk by Volunteers.


If anyone was flight crew in G-AWZU or have Trident Instruments we could use then please contact:
