BA has had a variety of different liveries, as shown above, but which is your favourite of all time? Please note that the entry for the world livery is just an example; if you prefer another type, submit it. My favourite would have to be the Union Jack version!

Horus -

I agree with you, all except for the nose. That black nose that BA has on some 757 and 767s just kills the whole thing! I mean serious.. why have a black ring there? Makes no sense to me..  Confused

My favourite BA livery is the Concorde adaptation of the Landor scheme. I think the pearl grey on the subsonic fleet looked quite drab, but Concorde looked very elegant in clean white complimented by the Speedwing red dash and the "TO FLY, TO SERVE" emblem on the tail.

The "Russian" tail on B733 G-XMAN, I am new to posting threads so I dont know how to post a pic of it. Come to think of it, all my pics are a bit naff of this bird. Its my most flown plane and two jump-seat landings.

Has anyone got a good pic of it?

Cheers folks, Steve.

Planesarecool,

You are a star, cheers mate. I will also agree the Chelsea Rose was a great tail as described by EZYairbus earlier.

Take care buddy, Steve.

IMO, I think that the black ring around the noses of the 737s and 757s look good on them. I'd love it if they'd add it to all of their aircraft.  Smile
