HS Trident 3 in BEA colours Postcard

Old Postcards showing classic aircraft of the past.

Welcome to the Aircraft section of Classic Wheels, a new site for everyone interested in preserved vehicles and historic transport.

This part of Classic Wheels contains scans of original postcards with an aviation theme to them, dating from way back when the Wright Brothers took their first tentative airborne hops, right through to Concorde, one of the few things we in the UK could be proud of (now sadly reduced to a silent relic in museums).

Please note that no postcard image on Classic Wheels is to be reproduced elsewhere, or directly linked to from other websites. I am not aware of any copyright on these images but if any images are under copyright, please get in touch and I will remove it, or credit it accordingly, asap.

Below is an original postcard, titled 'HS Trident 3 in BEA colours'.

This is postcard # 17 in this collection of aviation cards.

To see the other old aircraft postcards, visit the image list here and check out the other classic jets and prop planes of the past, in addition to this one of the HS Trident 3 in BEA colours.

More Information on this HS Trident 3 in BEA colours aeroplane postcard:

Here is a late 1960s view of a HS121 Trident 3B, G-AWYZ. The 3B was the lengthened and uprated version of the earlier Trident 1s and 2Es, all of which were subsequently repainted in British Airways colours and operated through to the early 1980s.
