a last minute change of mind, as there's another of the BOAC 747 in the competition I thought I would look for something different and remembered this one that won't be back any more. The Air New Zealand Hobbit 777 ZK-OKP arriving at Heathrow on a sunny December day in 2013 - I left it late to go to Heathrow that year!

As I've got absolutely no photos of retro schemes, I'll go with G-EZUI in easyJet's special orange scheme for their 200th Airbus, taken at Luton on 01/04/2012.

One of my favourite special schemes of relatively recent times was the Etihad Grand Prix liveries - A340-642 A6-EHJ landing at Heathrow on 09L in April 2011.

Gosh I have load's to choose from, various points but oddly I am going to choose G-BYGC as well, with her doing a flypast at Fairford RIAT 2019 with the Red Arrows. I chose this because personally this was quite special, something that's not going to happen again, and a retro scheme that's not going to last long, unlike other countries retro schemes!
