1st November
4th November
7th November
26th November x 2

Is a purported schedule for B767 retirements I've seen outlined on various social media.

If so the 26th will be a fairly nostalgic day.

what a coincidence - another BA type made it's final flight on November 26th but 15 years ago ;) that was extremely nostalgic and sad.

It appears that the 1st November retirement date was correct. G-BNWX has just overflown Bristol inbound St Athan with the fitting callsign BAW767.

Also inbound to St Athan a short time before the B767 was A319 G-EUPV. Also for retirement?

I can't find one of G- EUPV at present I'm afraid but will keep looking (I'm still working on a BA photo database)

B767 G-BNWZ was flown to St Athan yesterday for scrapping. Pictured last month on a 27L arrival at Heathrow.

That just leaves G-BZHA and HB for retirement on 26th November. If the weather looks to be OK I plan to head off up to Heathrow to see their final arrival.
