Description

The Hawker Siddeley Trident had its origins in the mid-1950s. Designed according to the outline specifications produced by British European Airways, the airliner was planned to accommodate around 100 passengers on short to medium-haul services throughout Europe. As completed, the aircraft became the first in the world designed with three rearmounted engines and the first capable of all weather operations.
Following considerable vacillation over the choice of engine and indecision over orders, the first of the aircraft-unusually there was no prototype flew for the first time in January 1962. The first scheduled services operated by the Trident were flown by BEA in March and April 1964. Although limited export sales were achieved of the aircraft -particularly to Pakistan and China t was with BEA and later British Airways that the Trident achieved considerable success for more than two decades. Whilst all the European-based Tridents have now been withdrawn, there remains a considerable affection amongst the pilots and aircrew for one of the most attractive of postwar airliners.
In the latest in the successful 'Classic Civil Aircraft' series Max Kingsley-Jones narrates in detail the dramatic history of the Trident from its origins in the mid-1950s through to the present day. Fully illustrated with both photographs and line drawings, the book also includes a pilot's eye view of flying the aircraft to provide a tribute to one of the leading civil aircraft to be manufactured in Britain.

 
À PROPOS DE CET EDITEUR
Ian Allan Publishing
Ian Allan Publishing was founded by Ian Allan ( 1922 - 2015 ) in 1942. Working then in the Public Relations Department for the Southern Railway at Waterloo Station ( London Borough of Lambeth, London, England ), he decided he could deal with many of the requests he received about rolling stock by collecting the information into a book. The result was his first book : ABC of Southern Locomotives. This proved to be a success, contributing to the emergence of trainspotting as a popular hobby in the United Kingdom, and leading to the formation of the company. Ian Allan Publishing has grown from a small producer of books for train enthusiasts and spotters to a large transport publisher. Each year it publishes books covering subjects such as military and civil aviation, naval and maritime topics, buses, trams, trolleybuses and steam railways, including history, preservation and modern operations. The headquarters is at the western end of Shepperton Railway Station ( Surrey, England ). At the end of 2016, the company announced that they were withdrawing from railway publishing. Crécy Publishing acquired these titles, including the Oxford and abc imprints, but would no longer publish these under the Ian Allan name. ( source : Wikipedia )
