You really nailed this one. I fully expected to see the date be early 80's. Obviously they didn't have 747-400s at that time, but this is an excellent composition of that era's livery. Well done!

Great shot. However, it is my least favorite BA/BOAC c/s.

A fabulous looking plane. The livery is 45 years old but (apart from maybe the font) isn't outdated in any way. It's still fresh, clean, characteristic and recognisable. Amazing when you think of it. They could reintroduce this anytime they like, actually I think this looks better than the current one.

I love all four BA/BEA retrojets by the way.

This would have been even more beautiful with a better font, the historical one does not seem to do justice to the livery. Great photo though!

The small "a" in airways always bugged me .. but this livery was really pretty on the VC10s .. :-)
