BOAC 747Back to Forum
Have to say it looked quite majestic in the skies over central Berkshire yesterday morning, having just taken off from the westerly runway at LHR.
Fist time I’d seen it and made me wish in a way that they could have retro fitted the interior.
Probably just me, but I’d be quite happy to sit in a paisley covered seat again, with those weird light grey earphones watching a solitary movie on a screen pulled down from the ceiling. 😉9 Mar 2019
I’ve only seen it on film and photos and it does look superb.

Yep, probably just you! I do understand nostalgia but I also like my comfort.
On the other hand, I’d dearly love to travel again in a DC3 or an Air Rhodesia Viscount as they were. I have fond memories of flying over the flat brown lands of Rhodesia, punctuated by lakes and rivers and the oases of green, and the grids of the towns. Flying low and slow, the distinctive whistle of the 4 RR Darts, 18,000 feet and 300 mph, looking out of those big windows at the scenery passing under us.9 Mar 2019
I was in a meeting in the Hyatt Hotel last week, and most of the room were vaguely engaged in proceedings, however as soon as the BOAC B747 landed the entire room turned around to look. Later that morning, the BEA A319 landed and the same again. Half bored people turning to stare at the new scheme.
Can’t wait for the next Nagur scheme, shame it’s not on a B787 with the number shaded like the B757 had.11 Mar 2019
B Cal livery would be great to see again. Childhood memories from the 80’s in the BCP carpark at Gatwick at dawn seeing a B Cal DC10 towering above.
Shame there are no Tri Jets to put it on anymore13 Mar 2019
