Fabulous. Didn't think BA was the kind of airline to have a retrojet so it's a great surprise. Would be great to see this livery on a 747-400 or one of the new 777-300ERs.

Wow! Superb! This plane needs to find a place in a museum and keep this livery for ever once it is retired. Well done BA!

The scheme is still quite modern in my view and fits quite well the 757 shape. It conveys a strong visual identity contrary to the current insipid scheme.

5 stars! The best aircraft in a great livery, long live the 757! Too bad BA didn't put the original RB211 on there....

Great photo, great plane. The paint scheme would look ultra-modern actually for the current fleet if they used a sans-serif font such as Helvetica.

Wonderful! I would love to see the rest of the fleet painted like this. This was such a commanding livery for the 747.

This livery should have never been altered. The most impressive scheme ever for BA. World liveries today seem to be on a downward spiral - in tersm of a loss of class and identity, by catering to commercial advertising interests. Do we really need a flying Bart Simpson? I think for worthy causes like breast cancer or remembering the troops who have sacrificed their lives, it's a different story. Would love to see this scheme on the triple 7 and A380 Bring it back!

I flew on CPET a few weeks back, while it was in the standard livery. Great to see it like this.

Awesome photo, mate! congrats BA for doing this - lots of free publicity relatively cheaply. now if only there was a jet painted in the last BOAC livery ... my absolute favourite livery of all time, especially on the mighty vc-10 ...

Very nice, tho the Landor which is the scheme they had after this one and before the current one is much the same apart from having the colors in the tail the other way around and looks great too. The 757 is a beauty and better than the A321 for hot and high ops so simply a better jet (also much better looking) and I hate it that they are being retired...

And there is no way that BA would paint every aircraft in their fleet with this livery, i like it, but the new one is wayyy better. That would happen if Ryanair installs PTVs and serve free hot meals on all of their flights!!

When i saw this photo i was immediately reminded of those rather pungent ham and cheese omelettes boac used to serve. I do like retro schemes and would also like to see the last boac scheme on a 777.

From what I heard is that an A320 is going into BEA and one of the new 773ERs is going into BOAC...

I much prefer this to Landor, it's too overrated! 5*!

The 757 looks cool in almost any airline livery imaginable...

Will they be replaced in BAs fleet by the a-321? -_-'... and the 747s by the a-380s... it's a sad time for REAL aviation fans... ugliness and lack of character, and charisma, all around >.<!!!

Did someone say VC-10, and in BOAC livery?!? Whoa, best ever! Nothing more elegant crossed the skies... Talk about beauty and character combined. Times when when "flight" meant voyage, and not simply transport. Oh yes, baby!

This is a super-sharp-looking livery, and looks better than 99% of the airliners flying today. Now let's get some 777s in the retro scheme - that would look really cool.
