British Airways To Fly 747 To Riat Again?

Sat Jan 03, 2004 8:36 pm

Hey all,
i noticed that last year BA flew in a specially charterd 747 into Fairford for the Air Tatoo. Does anyone know if they are going to do the same this year? If so, does anyone have the details, as I dont think I can miss out on the opputunity again!

Cheers,

Simon

Hi Simon,

I havent heard anything, but my best advice is to check out http://www.airtattoo.intheuk.com/. There doesn't seem to be anything specifically about the BA 744 on the site, but there is an Enquiry Form link, so maybe try that!

Cheers.

Hey Guys,

Yep, 2003 had a 744...2002 a 772. Hope we get the 772 again.....but it seems a regular thing. In fact, in and pre-1997 we had Concorde once or twice! So its anyones guess...but July has whizzed back round!
