I traveled to the UK to see the Final British Airways 747 flight and landing. During this trip, I was able to see all 3 British Airways Retro Liveries 747 across the countryside in England and Wales.
My first stop was Dunsfold Aerodrome, I visited the Landor livery 747. I was able to go inside and take a last look of the cabin and cockpit. Then I drove to Cotswold Airport to see Negus livery 747. Cotswold Airport CEO Suzannah Harvey personally gave me a tour and explain the work to save the 747.
My last stop was in Cardiff, Wales where the BOAC livery 747 flew out from Cardiff to St Athan. It was a very short ferry flight but a very emotional one as this was the final BA 747 flight. I was at St Athan to watch the Final BA 747 landing. It was a great momentous landing with a quick stop on the short runway. After landing, I went inside the 747 to interview the pilots and witness the final power down of the 747. It was the end of an era for British Airways 747.
All 3 BA retro 747 liveries (Landor, Negus and BOAC) will be preserved in the UK.
