The last Britten-Norman Trislander to be used by Aurigny, Guernsey’s airline, flew into IWM Duxford on June 21 to take its place in Duxford Aviation Society’s British Airliner Collection.
Aurigny’s first Trislander entered service in July 1971 and since then the company has operated a total of 23 of the distinctive, three-engined aircraft in various versions of the company livery and some in sponsored paint schemes. Duxford’s latest acquisition, G-BEVT, is painted in a scheme that prominently displays the airline’s website.
In other Duxford-related news, a quartet of Short Tucanos from 72 (Reserve) Squadron will be flying in to the Cambridgeshire airfield on Tuesday, June 27, landing at around 1.20pm. It’s part of the unit’s Grand Flypast in honour of its centenary.
