Take control of a classic British plane that enjoyed its heyday
during the 1960's and 70's - the Hawker-Siddeley Trident.
In 1957, BEA issued a specification for an aircraft to be

much re-specification and redesign, the Hawker-Siddeley Trident
was created and first flew in January 1962. So called because
of its three engines, the Hawker-Siddeley Trident was the
first tri-jet in history to fly and at its peak was one of
the fastest airliners made. You can practically feel the air
of anticipation as you grapple with the controls and manage
to get the notoriously difficult Trident 3B model off the
runway and into the air...
