sadly British airways announced this morning that they are retiring their remaining 747 fleet (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53426886) so lets have some memories of them here please - I wonder how many of the fleet we can find a photo of....

I'll start it with one of the Landor retro G-BNLY...

You don't always appreciate them till they are gone. In the days of film, tended to rarely take the regulars. Probably a feeling of plenty of time to get round to it.
So, a few oldies -

Lovely shots LondonEye, especially the cargo one.

Here's a couple from me, of the BOAC retro-jet with some friends at Fairford last year:

The BA Landor Livery has always been my favourite British Airways Livery. Just looks right on a Boeing 747.
