I'm cleaning up my flight log and identifying some flights for which a reg is possible to find.

In relation to this I have a small question regarding British Asia Airways' fleet.

I found two aircraft who wore the British Asia Airways altered landor (British Asia Airways titles iso British Airways and different tail design with Chinese characters). They are G-CIVE and G-BNLZ. According to airfleets.net there was only 1 aircraft in British Asia Airways' fleet and that was G-CIVE in the early 90's. Pictures in the database however point to G-BNLZ having been wearing that paint in the late 90's. I've flown the route at the end of September 1997 and was wondering if there might have been other planes wearing this paint at the time, or if it is certain that I flew aboard the zulu.

I did get lucky on that trip, hem, flying B-HIB Cathay Pacific Airways' Spirit of Hong Kong '97!

Thanks for the help!


I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!

G-CIVA also wore the old Landor British Aisa Airways colours. I saw her at my home airport Perth. in the late 90s.

The first aircraft to carry 'British Asia Airways' titles was G-BNLZ. It wore them and was also painted with the Asian adaptation of the standard BA Landor livery between March 1993 and September 1996:

Two further aircraft, G-CIVE and G-CIVA were painted with the same Asian adaptation of the BA Landor livery in July 1995:

In September 1999 G-CIVA was repainted in BA's Chelsea Rose livery and its 'British Asia Airways' titles were retained. G-CIVB which had previosly carried the standard old BA Landor livery with 'British Airways' titles was also painted in Chelsea Rose colours and given 'British Asia Airways' titles:

At the same time G-CIVE was given the standard 'British Airways' titles and returned to the BA main fleet.

In December 2000 an aircraft already painted in the BA Benyhone (Scottish tartan) livery with standard 'British Airways' titles, G-BNLI, was given 'British Asia Airways' titles:

Both G-CIVA and G-BNLI were repainted and given 'British Airways' titles in February 2002. G-CIVB was given the same treatment in the following month.

If you know the date of your flight as well as the route or flight number it might be possible to help further.

I know that British Asia Airways was set up simply to allow BA to serve Taiwan, and that the flights used the normal BA code, but did it have its own callsign, or did the flights use the 'Speedbird' callsign? Likewise, did the safety cards say British Asia Airways, or just the normal BA ones for the 744?


Let's Go British Caledonian!
