A while ago there was a link to the BA website concerning the olympic bid. One would sign his name and it said the 747 would have the signatures. Do you know what registration it is and are there already any pictures of it . I signed it thought I'm more favourable to Madrid or Paris gettin the olympics .


A man without the knowledge of his past history,culture and origins is like a tree without roots

I was wondering that too. From the London2012.com website there is this release, but it doesnt mention a particular plane. Maybe it just fell by the weyside. A bad oman if it has.

Stars depart with nationwide support

Some of the greatest names in British sport have departed from London to join the team aiming to secure the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in Singapore.

Five-time Olympic Rowing champion Sir Steve Redgrave - a London 2012 board member and Chair of the bid team's Athletes' Advisory Group - received messages of support from all over the United Kingdom before boarding a plane bound for the Far East.

Sir Steve was joined at Heathrow by Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Britain's greatest ever Paralypmian, Olympic Sailing gold medallist Shirley Robertson, sprint hurdles star Colin Jackson and Football legend Sir Bobby Charlton.

The athletes received London 2012 flags from all 12 nations and regions of the UK, signifying the overwhelming public support that the bid has enjoyed.

The ambassadors also posed with the giant London 2012 campaign flag, which was been signed by hundreds of stars from the stage, screen and sports field, including Michael Caine, Alan Shearer, Ellen McArthur and Dame Kelly Holmes.

Shirley Robertson said that London's bid had benefited hugely from the experience of athletes who have enjoyed the experience of competed in the Games.

"I have been delighted to be involved in London's bid for the Games," she said. "It truly is an excellent technical bid that will deliver the best possible experience for athletes.

"It is an honour to be flying to Singapore as part of the team."

Bid Chairman Sebastian Coe, who is already in Singapore rehearsing the crucial final presentation to members of the International Olympic Committee, welcomed the support London 2012 has received from all over the country.

"The support and passion for the bid shown from all corners of the United Kingdom - from Dundee to Dorset, Belfast to Birmingham - has instilled a great sense of pride within the London 2012 team," he said.

I am sure I saw a BA B747-400 parked on a Terminal 4 stand at LHR yesterday or Saturday which had what looked like scribbles all over the rear fuselage. I assume this is the aircraft. I only saw it from a distance though and think it could have been a reg. like G-CIVF...

That might have been a new tail design. LOL.

Couldn't resist. I actually liked the idea and about 80% of the tail fins that they had, so don't get laid into me for that.

Any chance it'll be flying BA269 to LAX this friday? Or BA282 on 29th July? Too early to tell i guess, but certain aircraft are used on certain flights (differences in Club World and WTP), so there may be a chance i guess. Wouldn't mind flying on it, as it should have my name on it  Wink

wow that really looks good! I know the BA 747s usually have differing configurations for different destinations, so where will this A/C be flying to?

From a BA Press Release on 27 April 2005:-

http://bapress.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/...c2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9b2x5bXBpYw**&p_li=

On another link it mentioned that the 'signed' 744 took PM Blair and party to SIN on 3 July for their last minute 'try'!

Eh? From what i saw on the news report, he was stepping off a PrivatAir B737-700... Though i thought that the idea of the petition was to take him to SIN.

Yes, I remember seeing that PrivateAir aircraft on the news, but to go LHR SIN, he, the GB Olympic 'team' and the British media, must have used a much more suitable long range aircraft . . . probably the 744 in question.
