Here’s a great (and disturbing) video of the British Airways aircraft stored at Bournemouth Airport

If you’ve got three minutes to spare, take a look at this YouTube video. It was filmed by David DuValle.

It was shot (with permission) at Bournemouth Airport using a drone.  It gives you an amazing view of all of the British Airways aircraft parked up, including a few Boeing 747s.

You even see the ‘Landor’ retro livery Boeing 747.  We covered the ‘Landor’ 747 repaint here.

The video includes a few dull shots shots of shuttered interior of Bournemouth Airport, but if you stick with it, it quickly cuts back to the parked British Airways fleet.

It is a fascinating and slightly disturbing watch.

    Quite a reminder how the climate emergency can be slowed down immensely and where the problems really are. Majority of these journeys are really not necessary and there is very little incentive for BA to replace the gas guzzling 747 and older aircraft types with newer fuel efficient models with Crude at such rock bottom prices.

    The technological solution to the climate emergency will never be really a serious option while oil is so cheap. Governments desperately need to step-in and reduce the impact of air travel with punitive measures. Flying is a privilege, not a right.

    I really think that down the line we will look at incentives to fly in the same way as how diesel was supposed to be so great but really wasn’t and was killing us.

      Maybe but nobody is doing anything about diesel vehicles yet

      • Theorist says:

        Probably because it’s such a tiny percentage of emissions, and governments have other things on their mind?
        And nobody is actually DOING anything about grounding aircraft, it’s a consequence of screwing the Western World over a flu virus. A global reset by Government.

    I bet the owners of Bournemouth Airport are earning a few £££’s in parking fees!

    • Alex Sm says:

      This was my question no.1 too! There is always someone who benefits from the crisis…

      My question no.2 is whether this time is going to be used to refurbish planes while they are not flying – it could be a perfect chance to do that, unless deemed non-essential for now

    Haunting…

    But being so close and ‘accesible’ (and almost perfectly positioned) to the public highway the ‘Landor’ 747 is surely going to prompt interest from aviation enthusiasts?
