BA Names

Does anyone know where (if) I can find a list of all the names the BA planes have (city of ...) and what type of ac that is wearing it?

In all their wisdom BA had the 'good' idea of giving their planes the names of the graffitti on the tails. Now that planes are being painted in the now standard 'Union Flag' livery they are being given one of only 3 names:
-Chatham Historic Dockyard
-United Kingdom
-Union Flag.

They used to be named after British cities, forests, rivers etc.
I'd like to know what happens when all BA planes have been re-painted. You can't have a fleet of over 300 aircraft all sharing 3 names!

Go to www.avnet.demon.co.uk. There you´ll find everything including pics of almost all aircraft that are wearing the livery introduced in 1997.

That really ticks me off that they only have three names for 300 aircraft. I loved how BA named their aircraft. It just added to their elegance.
