This month it is 25 years since British Caledonian Airways (BR) ceased to exist in April 1988, after it was taken over by British Airways.
Although I never had the chance to fly BR, I've long been fascinated by it. I love its distinctive purple and gold livery featuring a lion on the tail. For me, it's one of the iconic airlines of the 1970s and 1980s. Based in London Gatwick, its fleet included DC-10s, A310s and B747-200s and served an impressive set of destinations, including Dubai, New York and Hong Kong.
Have you flown BR? What was its service like? I'm interested in hearing about your experiences.
