The third repainted aircraft celebrating BA’s 100th anniversary took to the skies yesterday.
A Boeing 747 has been repainted in what is known as the ‘Landor’ livery (named after the firm that designed it) used between 1984 and 1997.
This aircraft originally had this livery when it entered service, and has been given back its original name – ‘City of Swansea’ – for the occasion.
It landed at Heathrow yesterday morning from the paint shop in Ireland and was immediately sent off to Miami. It will retain the paint scheme until the aircraft is retired in 2023.
I have scattered a few pictures throughout the rest of this article. There is one further repainted aircraft to come, which will feature the Negus design. This was used immediately before Landor and has some similarities to it.
