Heathrow Trident

Wed Aug 15, 2001 3:56 am

Wonder if anyone knows what is going on with the Preserved Trident that is kept stored on the BA West base at LHR on behalf of the Trident preservation society?

I passed by today and noticed that she has been painted into a white colour from the BA Landour livery she was previously in.

Is she being given the BA copropate make over?

I was amazed that BA didn't give it a World Colour. Now it would be great to see it in the Nelson's flag tail and (slightly) new livery.

I say 'slightly', excluding the colourful tail fins, all BA did to the livery when they ditched the Landor scheme was change the fuselage grey to white (and raise RITISH and IRWAYS to the same height as the B and the A). But that shitty grey is not missed, I always though BA planes looked dull and dirty. And if they're doing the same to the Trident then f***ing fabulous, can't wait to see it.
