Earlier on today, I posted a bit of background and some pictures of the British Airways BOAC retrojet – The BOAC Boeing 747-400.
Let’s take a deeper dive in to the plane as it arrived at London Heathrow today.
G-BYGC flew in from Dublin Airport after having its repaint completed there. It arrived at Heathrow at 10:24 local time.
On arrival outside the hanger, steps were attached, and the flight crew disembarked.
With the flight crew disembarked and the plane re-secured, the plane was towed into the hanger, where it was pride of place as part of British Airways 100th Anniversary Celebrations.
A close up of the tail detail. The Golden Speedbird takes pride of place, with the registration picked out in gold. The classic Boeing 747 font is used as well, along with a nod to today – with the current British Airways logo and Speedmarque, with the 100th anniversary logo (itself, a derivative of the Speedmarque).
