Yes, but . . .
G-BDXC was actually operating BA207 LHR
on 28 September but was diverted to MIA
because of poor weather in central Florida. Whether or not the diversion to Miami determined that its next flight was a ferry flight (MIA
, BA9183P) departing on 29 September and (I presume) arriving on 30 September I do not know. Anyway it had its titles, tail coat of arms, red fuselage 'Speedwing' and red tail flash painted out on arrival at LHR
and was then ferried LHR
(BA9183P) on 3 Oct. It was parked at MAN
and then ferried MAN
(BA9174P) on 12 Dec. After being registered to European Skybus while at CWL
on 8 March 02 it was broken up at CWL
between 15 and 23 July 02.
742, G-BDXF, had a similarly peculiar last BA
revenue flight. This was LHR
(BA049) on 1 Sep 01. It was then ferried SEA
(BA9150P) on 3 Sep and LGW
on 1 Oct 01. It too was registered to European Skybus while at CWL
(23 May 02) but subsequently saw service for European Aviation Air Charter on lease from European Skybus in European's black and blue livery.
