Warren Access was recently at the North East Land Sea and Aircraft Museum (NELSAM) helping the fantastic ‘Save the Trident’ volunteers clean the Trident 1C G-ARPO Aircraft with our Teupen Leo 18GT – The Original Tracked Spiderlift.
Tony head of Save the Trident volunteers said; “As you can imagine, it’s difficult to reach that high and can be dangerous to do on ladders, so we were grateful to receive the help of Warren Access who sent one of their Spiderlift machines and an operator.”
The aircraft served on the routes of BEA and British Airways for 18 years before it was retired at London Heathrow airport. Following a short period of storage, it was ferried to Teesside Airport (now Durham Tees Valley Airport) in 1983 to be used at the Civil Aviation Authority’s fire training school along with a number of other Tridents.
They originally helped to dismantle the aircraft at Teesside a few years ago so that it could be a part of NELSAM’s exhibit, so it is great that the aircraft has come full circle and is now part of the museum being enjoyed by everyone.
