Looks like BA is joining the retrojet club. Not bad, a 744 in the old BOAC colours.

Very nice. Would look killer in the newer jets like the 77W, 787 or A350

Cathay Pacific must have nicked BOAC's livery....

 

Funny to see a B747-400 adorning the BOAC livery with the good old -100/200/300 P&W engines in their rendering.

 

Wonder if the Landor livery is in the cards.  The Landor livery looks great!

This should look very good on an A350-1000...

 Cool, wish they do consider the livery used on the Comet IV too.

Should the Landor colour scheme on a BA 744 be considered 'retro' or 'reversal/change of mind' ?  :)

Question to everyone - does anyone remember which livery landed in which airport in its heyday? I know Landor was a visitor to SZB when it was still KUL, but did the BOAC livery arrived here? And did the Landor landed in KLIA?

I am quite sure BOAC made it to SZB (when it was KUL) - see the 707s and VC-10s regularly. Can't really remember seeing any 747s though.

Not sure if Landor made it to KUL - this livery was superseded in 1997, when KLIA opened. But there may be some aircraft in this livery pending the update. BA stopped coming to KUL in 2001.

I have seen both Landor livery in KUL and SIN during the 1990s.  I saw the Negus livery in HKG, KUL and SIN in the 1980s.

 

Landor livery is definitely one of the best livery of BA.
