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 built with at least 80 seats and a range of 1000 miles. After 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...

Trident is an add-on for those who already own Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002/2004. As well as getting the chance to pilot the Hawker-Siddeley Trident, aviation fanatics also have the opportunity to revisit other Trident aircraft. Trident allows enthusiasts to relive the glory days of British designed and built planes from 1962 to 1978.

There are three models of Trident to take control of, including the 1C, 2E and 3B - all include a 3D virtual cockpit as well as a 2D panel. The developer has also provided added realism by using photographic textures for the panel and instruments. The 3B option delivers an additional 5250 lbs. of thrust for take off and climbout at the flick of a switch. And, as in the real version, the aircraft is fitted with autoland.

A number of different liveries are also available, including BEA Red Square; BEA High Speed Jack; British Airways Red Tail; and CAAC.

If you are a true flying enthusiast - and spend hours locked away playing Microsoft Flight Simulator, then this add-on will come as a welcome diversion.
