The problem with Tridents isn't just that they're British. Tridents have serious design deficientcies, such as needing loooooooong runways for take-off (actually, if the Earth was flat, a Trident wouldn't take off!) and is fairly noisy, and is range restricted, and has a problem with stalling( This applies only to Trident 1s). The Trident just was messed up by BEA. Had the original design gone into production, it would havew sold much better and Rolls-Royce would probably have not nearly gone bankrupt and shut down. -- Peter "All alone in the Lonely Land"
