British Airways unveils latest retro livery on Boeing 747

British Airways has unveiled the latest of their series of retro liveries, with this one being the 1984-1997 Landor livery.

The aircraft to receive this retro makeover is G-BNLY, which is a 26 year old Boeing 747-400. Rolling out of the paint hangar in Dublin this morning, British Airways then ferried it to London Heathrow for its BA211 flight to Miami.

As well as being the standard Landor livery many used to remember, the aircraft also has the British Airways 100th anniversary decal on the aft section towards the tail.

British Airways now has three retro aircraft in their fleet, with the first being the BOAC 747-400 and the recent BEA Airbus A319, as seen in the images below.
