Well have waited for a nice day and finally got one today, fantastic weather not a cloud in sight!
This is in around 2-3hrs worth of spotting .... All colour schemes are actually what i saw, but registrations arent...

The BEA 60's c/s Trident is part of the Trident preservation society, and belongs to them. They pay for upkeep etc of the plane and from what i've heard it has the full 60's interior layout to match the paintscheme on the outside. Did you notice the shorter than usual wings? They had to be clipped a few years back to be able to fit in a hanger that it was in. Shame as it looks a slittle odd with short wings
I'll be flying out of LHR this weekend for a quick BMI hope to MAN, as its now cheaper to fly there than drive.
