One year ago retro BA 747's

Post by xkeKeith » Tue Mar 16, 2021 10:59 am

Got a phone call to tell me that BA Ops had arranged for the 3 B747's in retro schemes plus the B747 that was being flown into retirement that day would all depart Heathrow in a 60 minute period at lunch time. Grab the camera and the car keys:

G-BNLY in the Landor scheme departed as I parked the car luckily it was the only one of the three I had photographed before .... Then G-CIVB lined up.

Off to Wales G-CIVM:

After a short delay G-BYGC departed:

A few weeks later they would all be grounded...

For completeness G-BNLY taken earlier:

Thanks for posting, I do like the Landor scheme. We'll have to make do with the Retro schemed A319s as I can't imagine them painting the next A350 in a retro scheme.
