On 21 March, the final British Airways retro livery aircraft will be leaving the paint shop at Dublin Airport. The Boeing 747-400 (G-CIVB) in Negus design is the final in a series of four heritage liveries being painted as part of British Airways’ centenary celebrations – a British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) liveried Boeing 747, a British European Airways (BEA) Airbus 319 and a British Airways Landor 747 are already in the skies.
Tomorrow, the 747 will leave Dublin Airport at 09:30 (UTC) and is expected at London Heathrow around 10:55.
Looking forward to catching sight of our latest retrojet, B747 G-CIVB, in a light similar to this. She'll be wearing the earlier version of this Negus & Negus livery, with the full British Airways titles.

Looks like Dave Wallsworth, a famous twitter captain, will be flying the aircraft.
