Trislander destined for Duxford

WITH the run-down of the Aurigny Air Services Britten- Norman BN-2A MkIII Trislander fleet now almost completed, the final example in service, G-BEVT, has been donated to the Duxford Aviation Society’s British Airliner Collection. The machine — the last airworthy Trislander in the UK — is scheduled to make five final pleasure flights on 20 May, three from Guernsey and two from Alderney, which are already sold out.

The aircraft will be the first addition to the DAS airliner collection since BAC One- Eleven G-AVMU arrived at Duxford on 4 March 1993. Meanwhile, the Trislander donated to Solent Sky in Southampton, G-RLON (see News, Aeroplane May 2017) arrived at Lee-on-Solent, Hampshire on 5 April, and is currently stored on the airfield.
