BA777 In Chelsea Rose Scheme

Mon Apr 19, 1999 12:29 pm

I saw a BA777 in the chelsea rose scheme today at DFW. It looked shiny and spotless like a brand new aircraft. I'm not sure if had just been washed/serviced or if it really was new. Its registration was G-VIIS.
I've flown on 9V-SPK.

I believe that aircraft was delivered just this month, so you guessed right.

While we're on the subject, didn't BA's most recent order call for RR powered 777s?
