There's a photograph in today's Independent newspaper in the UK of BA
managers, supposedly at RAF Wroughton, learning the rudiments of baggage
handling and towing aircraft in preparation for a forthcoming strike.
And what are they practicing on?  A Trident 3, G-AWZM!  It's in what
looks to have been BA livery, not BEA.

But why would an RAF base have a Trident?  They are favourites at
airports for fire training, but surely military fire crews don't need to
practice fighting fires on airliners ...
