British Airways rolls back years with BOAC livery.

tmb boac anniversary liveryBritish Airways' celebration of it's 100th anniversary got underway on February 18, 2019 with the unveiling of the first of several aircraft with retro colour schemes. The initial jet, a Boeing 747-400 (G-BYGC), has been repainted in the BOAC livery of BA's predecessor in the 1960's and early 1970's.

Further details soon of its plans for further "retro jet" liveries, rumoured to include earlier British Airways schemes along with that of BEA, BOAC's short-haul contemporary which is believed to be destined for an Airbus A319.
