I can't access the picture but I suspect from your description that it's the green airport fire-training mock-up at LHR which includes a 747-type fuselage and a fin-mounted engine cowling like the DC-10.

This is a DC747, very unusual aircraft. As you can tell from the livery, Braniff was the only airline to order it. I think it was introduced sometime in the late 70s, and mainly flew on the lucrative Muscle Shoals - Little Rock route.
Can't find any DC747 pics in the database for some reason.

You mention most other airports uses second hand Tridents, which reminds me about the BEA livery Trident Three parked near the BA maintainance base at Heathrow. It seems to be in good condition - anyone know why it's there?
