British Airways debuts Boeing 747 painted in BOAC livery

Crowds gathered at Heathrow earlier to watch the much-anticipated arrival of a British Airways Boeing 747 painted in the design of its predecessor British Overseas Airways Corporation.

The aircraft entered the IAC paint bay at Dublin Airport on February 5th where it was stripped of its current British Airways Chatham Dockyard design before being repainted with the BOAC livery which adorned the BOAC fleet between 1964 and 1974.
