It’s Sunday again and this time, I’ve dived into the archives for this week’s Airplane Art.
This week, we have a British Airways Boeing 747-400 at its second home of New York JFK, as it is prepared for loading and the transatlantic flight back to London Heathrow
British Airways retired their Boeing 747-400 fleet during the height of the pandemic, letting go of their fleet of Queen’s of the Skies. The long haul fleet duties are now handled by the Airbus A350-1000, Airbus A380, Boeing 777-200ER, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10.
Together, they are rebuilding the network that existed before the pandemic, connecting the world via London Heathrow.
This aircraft was delivered to the airline in January 1999. It remained in the fleet until March 2020, when it was grounded. The airplane met its fate with the scrapper a year later in March 2021.
