British Airways 747-400 G-BNLY (Landor retro livery)

(I checked and I don’t believe that a topic already exists for this aircraft but i may be wrong!)

British Airways was founded in 1974 after the merger of BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) and BEA (British European Airways.) However these airlines can trace their history’s to Imperial Airways(?) who were founded in August 1919. To celebrate the centenary British Airways decide to paint 4 aircraft into retro livery’s (3 747-400s and an A319)

G-BNLY, a 1993 built Boeing 747-436 was the third to be painted in a retro livery. Arriving in March 2019, It was decided to be painted in the iconic Landor livery used in the 1984-1997 period. In my opinion the landor is the best of all BA livery’s to date and would look brilliant in Infinite flight! G-BNLY being oldest 747 remaining in the British Airways fleet is a regular at terminal 3 at Heathrow and can also be seen on the following routes.

Phoenix - BA289
Miami - BA206
Nairobi - BA64
Accra - BA78
Austin - BA191
Cape Town - BA58

Mainly it flies any long haul routes BA operate for Heathrow Terminal 3. I think it would be great to see this livery, which represents a large proportion of BA’s history on IF.
I also think it looks great and would be awesome to see in the skies of Infinite flight as it looks great in general!

I was lucky enough to catch this one in real life so the photo is mine! Thanks for reading!

Aweomse, you’ve got my vote! I flew on this aircraft on Monday operating as Ba 191

You’re very lucky to fly the landor and it’s a good trip report! I’m flying to New York this summer but they don’t usually go there.

I’m giving this a little bump! It would be great to have all three BA retros in IF!

Yeah I agree. I’m a little bit surprised how few votes this thing has to be honest.
