The development of the Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident passenger aircraft began in the late 50s - early 60s of the last century, while the main designer of the aircraft was the Canadian aircraft manufacturer De Havilland Aircraft Company, however, the aircraft itself was produced by the British aircraft manufacturer Hawker Siddeley. The Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident made its first flight in 1962, and after a number of improvements in the design, starting in 1964, it began to be mass-produced.

Depending on the cabin, in the aircraft Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident could accommodate 101 to 180 passengers at the same time the aircraft was very reliable, but not cost-effective in terms of its operation, which ultimately was the main reason for the rapid discontinuation, which ended after the withdrawal of the conveyor unit 117.

The power plant of the Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident aircraft is represented by three, and in one of the modifications, four Rolls Royce Spey RB163 turbofan engines, which allow developing a total thrust of 138 kN and more, depending on the model version. The aircraft engines used were quite reliable, but the fuel consumption was truly colossal, which in turn required ensuring the aircraft's rated load of at least 85% for the payback of the flights.

During the production of aircraft Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident, it was built four additional modifications that improve and perfect, but in the end remained unclaimed in the rapidly developing market.

Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 1 - basic production model, designed for passenger transportation 101, 2170 at distances up to kilometers, flying at speeds of the order of 937 km \ h (cruise speed of flight). At its core, the model is a prototype and its operation is not proizvodilpas.

Model Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 1C received a number of improvements in some, in particular, they touched upon the increase in the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft, increased flight distance is about 3259 kilometers and increased fuel capacity.

Version Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 1E received not only the interior with increased seating capacity, but also a number of changes affecting the design of the aircraft. In particular, the aeronautical engineer increased the wingspan to 29 meters, strengthened fuselage structure and to equip the aircraft with new aircraft engines, allowing to develop the cumulative thrust 153 kN. On board the aircraft could accommodate up to 108 passengers and a maximum flight distance increased to 3,5 thousand kilometers.

Model Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 2E is a modification version 1E. Due to the changed cabin on board the aircraft could accommodate up to 115 passengers and aircraft engines and new tanks increased volume allowed the aircraft to overcome the distance to 4300 kilometers.

Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 3B, except for the increased passenger capacity, which began to be 180 people, also received changes in the fuselage design, in particular, its length was 39 meters 98 centimeters, and the wingspan increased to 30 meters. In addition to the three turbofan aircraft engines, aircraft designers also made a special booster capable of developing an additional thrust of 23,4 kN. Nevertheless, the flight performance of the Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Trident 3B aircraft has not changed for the better - the cruising flight speed dropped to 917 km / h, and the flight range did not exceed 3600 km.

The final version of the Hawker Siddeley HS 121 Super Trident 3B saying only increased following distance, however, as demand for the model did not use, was built only 2 aircraft.
