I think you can listen to The Devil's Trill played by Itzhak Perlman
I am an embarassment to my opera fanatic friend's but almost always now listen to Sutherland in this amazing Youtube collection. There is no playlist, but I am sure the opera is either Somanamula or Puritani and at 20.50 you can hear Sutherland do a trill over a wider span of notes than just two adjacent notes.

Another singer with huge voice I keep forgetting is Leyla Gencer, was just listening to a compilation and her technique (including a great trill) and agility is amazing for such a powerful dramatic voice
The best trills ever were probably emanating from the throats of the special virtuosic singers alive in Handel's day-castratos and sopranos for whom Handel wrote his most virtuosic arias.

When you don't know what you're saying, you take a long time to say it. When you know what you're saying, you get pithy.
A trill that always left me open-mouthed for its precision is the one at the end of "Caro nome" as sung by Callas (go to the 7:00 mark - or just listen to the whole lovely thing!).
