Aurigny Trislander takes final commercial flight

The plane will spend its retirement on display at an aviation museum in Cambridgeshire Photo:

Aurigny's last remaining Trislander will make its last commercial flight this morning, after nearly 25 years with the airline.

The plane will spend its retirement on display at an aviation museum in Cambridgeshire.

IWM Duxford is run by Imperial War Museums and is home to over 100 historic civil and military aircraft.

It is one of three Trislanders due to be put on public display, with plans for the iconic 'Joey' to take pride of place at Guernsey’s Oatlands Village and the recently-retired G-RLON to be displayed at Solent Sky Museum in Southampton.

Aurigny is delighted that its last Trislander will be displayed in the world’s premier collection of British airliners, where it will join many other famous types from aviation history. IWM Duxford is a wonderful museum, and having G-BEVT there will allow hundreds of thousands of visitors to view it year-round.
