North East Air Museum bosses have been floored by the support of Frank’s.

Two years ago, the flooring store chain supplied and fitted an almost exact copy of the original carpet for the front end of the last 1960s Trident 1C passenger plane in the world, which is being restored at the museum in Sunderland.

Now the Frank’s team has returned to the museum to carpet the rear half of the plane.

Mick Copeland, Frank’s business development manager for the North East, said: “This plane represents a piece of North East history and we are incredibly proud of this region, which is our home. The work being carried out will preserve this superb aircraft.”
