British Airways to repaint 747-400 in BOAC "retro scheme"

Recommended Posts

Excellent news, and here`s hoping for a red square BEA  A320/21 and a speedjack maybe. Red wings unlikely though I suspect.

Be still my beating heart. That’s gorgeous! Good on BA for doing this - I love the retro schemes and this will look awesome on the 744.

I can just imagine red wing , black cheat line, red square A320s.  or the Embraers.

 

Heres a what if.... The re -release of the Airfix Concorde in the same scheme.....

Great to hear.  That BOAC scheme really is the mutz.  I wish BA would bring back Speedbird as a matter of course.  That wreath thing looks soooo dated.  It always reminds me of those horrible outfits the stewardesses wore during the 1980s.

Negus? Didn't know the FERENGY had anything to do with it!

The next 747 to be repainted will be in the Landor scheme, painting to start next week.

The LANDOR  scheme is my favourite BA livery, very elegant.

Has the BEA A319 broken cover yet any one?

The final one has to be Negus. Surely?

Out of curiosity, how did they come up with LANDOR for a name?    Glad to see BA taking the time and spending the money for all these retro schemes!

It was designed by Landor Associates of New York

I found this about the Landour scheme, fwiw, imho of course, I liked the previous scheme, rather than calling it bland as the article does, I thought it was clean, simple & fresh looking. it was also the scheme I flew to the UK via Perth & Bombay in early 1983 at the beginning of my second season driving tours around the continent.

As the Negus design has nothing to do with Haile Selassie :
