Another Boeing 767-300 long haul withdrawn yesterday 6/12/2015 , this time G-BNWS

Source : http://www.thebasource.com/british-airw ... withdrawn/

"December 6, 2015
British Airways Boeing 767-336ER G-BNWS was withdrawn from service at London Heathrow this afternoon after arriving as BA154 from Cairo. The aircraft then positioned London Heathrow – Cardiff-Wales as BA9171 for component recovery. This brings the Boeing 767-300ER fleet down to twelve aircraft and the longhaul Boeing 767-300ER fleet down to five aircraft."

Also , it seems as though G-BNWT has some reprieve before her retirement

Thanks for the updates over the past couple of weeks.

Here's G-BNWS back in 2012

as noted, G-BNWT has returned to service and is operating a mix of short and longhaul services.

With regards to the next two B747-400 withdrawals, apparently G-BNLW will go to ASI at Kemble (should have gone today) and G-BNLX to the SAS at St Athan in the New Year.

Even in retirement the BA 747s continue to provide valued service.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-35312998

If rumours are to be believed a number of the recently retired B747s at Kemble have/are being used for training by special forces. I'm not sure if it has been clarified what purpose the 2 B747s roaded out to Herefordshire were put to although the press release at the time said for use by a 'Design College'.

With my ceasing to use Photobucket many of the photo links on this thread have been broken. I've now started to upload the images to Flickr and will gradually restore the thread links as well as update it where necessary.

Bringing the thread up to date.

As Niall reported, G-DBCI has left the fleet for pastures new whilst G-BNWX has been ferried to St Athan.

G-DBCI at Heathrow in 2014

G-BNWX at Heathrow a couple of weeks ago
Image20180421-145133-Heathrow by Neil D. Brant, on Flickr

It looks as though BA have a busy 12 months ahead with fleet renewals - 17 further withdrawals, including all of the remainder of the B767 fleet, and 18 new airframes to be delivered.

according the the Heathrow spotters & photographers FB group B.767 G-BNWB will ferry to St Athan at 13.31 today after flying it's last service to Stockholm & return yesterday, it's done well - over 28 years old

I actually have a photo of it as well, landing at Heathrow in February 2015:

A couple of updates from myself, as follows:

G-BNWA on 27L at Heathrow in January 1995 and wearing Club Europe titles - flown to St Athan for scrapping 18 July.

F-HILU (G-BNWI) of BA affiliate OpenSkies flown to St Athan for scrapping - here as G-BNWI on 27L at LHR in 2013
Image20130207-122917-Heathrow-2 by Neil D. Brant, on Flickr

It should be a busy autumn and winter for BA with fleet disposals as the new A320/A321 NEOs and A350s enter service alongside the increasing B787 fleet.

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.
