With British Airways latest descion on retirement of 747 immediately I wanted to have some exclusive flying on probably every spotter’s joy and much awaited aircraft while spotting
Literally the flying Queen on Britain …
Those 4 massive engines flying round the world with the pride of Britain…
The British Airways 747 will always be a legendary aircraft and we all will miss once it goes to rest .
When you say British Airways it’s the queen that comes into mind first…
Here are some from my flight from Delhi ( VIDP )
To London Heathrow ( EGLL )
Note that British Airways had replaced the airframe operated on this route to the 787 Dreamliner but this route was actually flown by 747
