Monday 18th February was a historical day for British Airways when Boeing 747-436 G-BYGC arrived at London Heathrow Airport from Dublin newly painted in the livery of BOAC "British Overseas Airways Corporation". This year "2019" marks the lineage centenary of British Airways, and to celebrate this the airline are painting some aircraft up into retro schemes. This aircraft G-BYGC was delivered to British Airways in January 1999 and has served the airline well ever since. The BOAC livery applied to Golf Charlie was previously worn by Boeing 747 series 100s in 1969 to 1974, a truly golden age in aviation. The prototype Boeing 747 flew for the first time in February 1969 thus making this a double celebration for Boeing and British Airways.
This limited edition 1/200 scale metal model aircraft comes with a special speedbird stand, collectors’ card and centenary sleeve.
