British Airways go retro

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Flight enthusiasts were in for a treat on Monday as British Airways unveiled a plane which had been repainted with its original retro design.

The Boeing 747 arrived at Heathrow airport featuring British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) livery – which had not been used in over 40 years.

Aviation fans gathered to watch the aircraft land, with many praising its retro look.

The livery was originally used between 1964 and 1974, when the airline operated as BOAC.

The plane was repainted at Dublin airport and will continue to sport its nostalgic design until it is taken out of service in 2023.


Once you're here...
