BA Livery News Part 4

Wed Sep 04, 2013 10:25 am

BA Livery News Part 3 (by skipness1E Mar 9 2013 in Civil Aviation) Archived (!)

Just to bump things up, add two more with G-ZBJC having been delivered and G-STBG due. G-STBG will be the first B77W with the crest.

Yes I was inspecting it at ARN last night, commenting on how well it had been painted. All sharp edges and no overflow.

Good news to hear G-EUOE is back in the air and due back in service shortly. Crazy to think almost 4 months ago.

As for Liveries isn't G-EUYP due for delivery in the next few weeks, surely must be painted in new livery?

G-EUUY was ferried to MAD on 8 September. Before that G-EUXG on 7 August and G-EUUS on 19 August were also ferried to MAD. Both returned to LHR after nine and thirteen days in ~Union Flag Crest livery. So G-EUUY . . .

Quoting bluesky73 (Reply 4):

Yes. First flight and ferried TLS-XFW on 13 September in full Union Flag Crest livery:

Yes, why has BA opted not to take new ceoA320s with sharklets like most other carriers have done recently?

The BA Source is reporting that 'UY is now wearing Union Flag Crest livery. So:

Quoting bluesky73 (Reply 14):

'UN is the likely candidate to be # 79. 77W G-STBH was reportedly towed from the FAL to the Paint Shop at PAE on 11 September so might already be in the Crest livery. Either way it is "favourite" to be # 78.

Incidentally G-EUPY is the fifth BA 320 to carry the test registration "F-WWIC". The other four were:

G-BUSJ (from 13 June to 6 August 1990)
G-EUUY (from 19 August to 19 September 2008)
G-EUYF (from 5 to 28 January 2010)
G-EUY1 (from 14 May to 3 June 2010

I do not think so.

G-EUPY carried the test registration D-AVYK. G-EUUY did carry the test registration F-WWIC. The Airfleets web site confirms this:

http://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a320-3607.htm

http://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-a319-1466.htm

However for "G-EUY1" please read "G-EUYI"!

According to The BASource G-EUUK was repainted back in April with crest.

Must have had the red nose added recently.

(The BA Source is reporting 320 'UN arrived back at LHR today (1 Oct) after being repainted with Crest in IB Paint Shop. There it has been replaced by 'UU - see Reply 30. 'UN re-entered service late this afternoon and is currently on its way back to Spain (LHR-BCN, BA486).)

Strange that all the new A320s are being delivered with the light and dark shading around the tail cone area while the repainted aircraft don't have it.

Well spotted!

I have had a close look at BA 320s in the photo database, specifically G-EUAA to 'UK, G-EUYI to 'YP and G-MIDO, 'DS, 'DT and 'DX.

All of the above excepting the four ex-BD aircraft originally had the light and dark shading on their tail cones from the day they were delivered but now have un-shaded cones. This applies not just to those that now carry the Crest but to those that were repainted earlier like G-EUUE and G-EUUI (repainted without the shading in the first week of July 2010 and in May or June 2010 respectively) and also G-EUUD (repainted in the second week of June this year but without the Crest). The four ex-BD aircraft (first painted in BA livery in August, October and November 2012) have never had the shading on their tail cones.

So it is looking as if while Airbus paint the shading on the tail cone BA (and IB) do not when they repaint 320s.

On a different tack I note that 320 G-EUUK now has a Red Nose cone as well as the Crest. The earliest report I can find of this is on 1 October at DUS.

Flew her last week from GLA and it has never had a paintjob " ever " since delivered in may 98'
Apart from the tail into standard union flag livery back in the early 00s.

Painting was carried out in AMS due to repairs being carried out in TBK.

763 G-BZHB on way back from AMS now. Apparently went to AMS for repaint. Not the usual location for repaint?

Aircraft numbers must numbering in the early 80s with crest. Does anyone know how many are brilliant white or date bright-white was introduced, I think it was June with G-EUYO?

And the crew that went to collect it flew there on G-BZHC, which they left there. So must be in the paintshop as well?

Your right TristarSteve:

Does anyone know why 2x 763s ZHB and ZHC have/are being repainted in AMS and not MAD? Does IB need paint-shop back?
I thought paintshop at LHR was operational again and might be G-EUUP in there at moment?

A good guess might be that IB had spare capacity in their Paint Shop as they delayed repainting their own aircraft prior to the launch of their new livery on 15 October. Now that launch has happened it is probably catch-up time with those aircraft that had their repaint postponed almost queuing up outside the MAD paint shop. So I would not expect to see any BA aircraft going to MAD to be painted for some time.

If right this helped BA as IB had spare capacity while the BA Paint Shop was closed and they were preparing for the launch. But that is no longer the case.

Has anyone seen or, better still, photographed this year's twenty-seventh 'Dreamflight' aircraft, G-BNLZ, that is currently parked at MCO awaiting tomorrow's (Sunday 27 October) return 'Dreamflight'.

For many years each 'Dreamflight' had large and small caps multicolour 'Dreamflight' titles as on G-BNLM here:

except for special anniversary years when the appropriate birthday was added as here:

However for some reason in 2004 all-maroon lettering was used:

But the twenty-fifth anniversary "Dreamflight" aircraft did not have multi-colour titles and used upper and lower case:

It was followed last year by G-BNLG wearing multicolour lower case 'dreamflight' titles:

So the question is: 'What titling is 'LZ currently wearing?'

Sorry. Found the answer to my own question nine seconds from the end of the short video here:

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/en...-on-dreamflight-trip-29674972.html

G-BNLZ has multicolour lowercase 'dreamflight' titles as G-BNLG had last year - see my previous post.

Hang on, you sure abouy G-LCYK? On your own list we have G-LCYR / 1, G-LCYJ / 2 both of which I have seen then it gets muddled with G-LCYK/L whereas before your number 79 was G-LCYJ.....
I don't want to see homework like this again young man.....
