RAF Tristar at Heathrow
RAF Tristar at Heathrow
This is an RAF Tristar (ZE704) being serviced by British Airways outside their hangars at Heathrow's maintenance area in 1986. The hangar in the background was built in the 1970s when BEA (later part of BA) had just ordered Tristars. The structure on the right is a jet blast deflector, used when aircraft engines are tested, so as to reduce noise and keep staff and equipment out of the dangerous blast.
