Thanks very much for posting that link, what an enjoyable read that was very informative and greatly appreciated.
It's strange but it's a very sad day in the history of British Airways to finally see the final B763 leave the fleet, I can honestly say that I've enjoyed every flight that I have taken on those B763s and they will be greatly missed indeed and it was always a pleasure walking down the AirBridge and boarding them on those short haul Euro routes it really was, flying an Airbus is fine but they will never capture my heart as those B763s did, I don't think that I've ever felt the same about any other aircraft retiring from British Airways except for Concorde but that's totally different for many reasons.
We're all reminiscing and looking back with great fondness of the B763 with British Airways but can you imagine when the day finally comes when we're be witnessing the final flight of the B747 now that without any doubt whatsoever will be an extremely emotional day indeed after all those years it will be very strange not to see a B747 in the British Airways fleet as we've all grown up knowing that they are there.
Weird isn't it how individuals can get attached to what at the end of the day is just a chunk of metal but you get attached and you think of how many passengers they have safely flown over the decades.
My real passion is ships and I can assure you that in the past when my favourite liners have gone to scrap I have absolutely poured my eyes out with tears, I'm not quite like that with Aviation although I have to admit I was on the day of the final Concorde flights and I've got a funny feeling that I will probably be the same on the day of the final British Airways B747 flight, I better stop before I get too emotional.
