  History of the Hawker Siddeley Trident
The Trident was originally conceived by de Havilland in the late 1950s as the DH 121 in response to British European Airways (BEA)'s request for a new short to medium haul haul jet airliner, in competition with the Vickers VC-11.
Tridents served with BEA through the 1960s and 1970s and its successor, the merged British Airways began retiring the oldest aircraft in 1976 with the final 3B variants retiring ten years later.
The Tridents were assembled at the de Havilland site at Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK, becoming a Hawker Siddeley Aviation site when the individual company names were dropped in 1963 and subsequently a British Aerospace site during the nationalisation of the British aircraft industry in 1978 and consequent merger of HSA with the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC).

 History of PIA - Pakistan International Airlines
PIA operated the 'hot and high' version of the Hawker Siddeley Trident, the series 1E.
PIA's Tridents had been ordered to replace Viscounts and were used on domestic and regional services from Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi to Dacca and later to the Persian Gulf destinations which included Bahrain, Doha, Kuwait and Dubai.
Later, PIA found that its Tridents had been so effective in generating traffic that the levels on its regional routes had outgrown the Trident's capacity.

 Trident PC Video Game Review by AceGamez
Unfortunately for Trident, by 1972 the Boeing 727 was well established as the aircraft of choice for many of the world's airlines and because of this, only 117 trident aircraft were ever built.
Tridents were a relatively common site at British airports all over the UK in the 1980s and this add-on is an excellent nostalgia trip for all aviation enthusiasts.
Trident is very hard to criticise; running without fault and with no detriment to the usual running of FS2004, it resurrects a classic jetliner and returns you to the 1960s with style.

 Hawker Siddeley Trident
Hawker Siddeley Aviation, gegründet 1959 als Zusammenschluss mehrerer britischer Flugzeughersteller, begann mittlerweile, auch nach anderen Kunden Ausschau zu halten; 1960 begann man Gespräche mit American Airlines, die jedoch eine größere Reichweite forderten – was nicht einer gewissen Ironie entbehrte, da die ursprüngliche DH 121 die Bedingungen von American fast perfekt erfüllte.
Hawker Siddeley bot 1965 zwei mögliche Typen an: zum einen die HS-132, ein größeres, nur noch zweistrahliges, Flugzeug mit Platz für 158 Passagiere, dass ansonsten der Trident noch stark ähnelte; zum anderen die HS-134, mit unter den Flügeln montierten Triebwerken und Platz für 185 Passagiere.

The de Havilland and Tupolev designs had engines incorporated within the wings next to the fuselage, a concept that endured only within military designs whilst the graceful Caravelle pioneered engines mounted either side of the rear fuselage.
In the 1960s, when jetliners were powered by slim, low-bypass engines, many aircraft used the rear-engined configuration, such as the Boeing 727, Douglas DC-9, BAC One-Eleven, Hawker Siddeley Trident, Ilyushin Il-62 and Vickers VC-10.

BEA was happier with this smaller design (now known as the Trident 1 after BEA held a competition to name it) and placed a contract for 24 on August 12, 1959.
At this point BEA decided that the Trident was now too short-legged for their ever-expanding routes, and decided that an even longer-ranged version was needed.

BEA was happier with this smaller design (now known as the Trident 1 after BEA held a competition to name it) and placed a contract for 24 on August 12th, 1959.
The main difference was a larger fuel tank in the center section of the wing, raising weights to 115,00 lb (52,000 kg) and range to 1,400 miles.
Of course, the 727 was able to re-use the fuselage section of the 707 and thereby reduce development costs, and even if the Trident had been "perfect" it is unlikely that it would have had much success in the massive and very nationalistic US airline industry.

The Trident 3B was the last model to be produced and the last of those was delivered in 1975.
All 115 Tridents built were retired early by modern standards: it was rare for a machine to serve for much longer than 12-13 years or 20, 000 hours.
In 1977 British Airways' Trident 3Bs were found to have extensive wing spar cracking at Rib 8 (a third of the way out from body to wingtip) and underwent extensive repairs.
