British Airways has, for the first time today, brought together its four heritage liveried aircraft, alongside an A319 in the current Chatham Dockyard livery.
The aircraft were repainted to mark the airline’s centenary this year. All four were lineup to capture a rare image of some of the airline’s most iconic designs together.
The photos captured today also mark the fact that 50,000 customers have already flown around the globe on the four heritage liveries since they re-joined the fleet, with the Boeing 747s having travelled to destinations such as New York, Cape Town, Dubai and Lagos, while the BEA liveried Airbus A319 has flown far and wide across the airlines’ UK and European network to cities including Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Milan, Zurich and Amsterdam.
To capture the photo, the four heritage aircraft, which were in scheduled downtime and parked at the airline’s engineering base, were lined up alongside an aircraft with the current Chatham Dockyard design.
The painstaking process of arranging them for the photo took over two (careful) hours.
