The latest British Airways retrojet, a Boeing 747-400 painted in the Landor livery of the 1980s and 1990s, emerged this morning from the paint-shop in Dublin.

The aircraft, registration G-BNLY, was ferried to London Heathrow this morning ahead of its service-entry later today to Miami operating BA211.

The scheme, which is named after the creative agency Landor Associates that designed it, features the British Airways coat of arms with the motto ‘To Fly. To Serve.’ on the fin, with a stylised section of the Union Flag. The livery also includes the airline’s centenary logo, which is shown on all centenary heritage designs.

The Landor 747 joins two other BA retrojets that the airline has introduced as part of its centenary celebrations – a BOAC 747-400 and a BEA Airbus A319. One additional retrojet is widely expected to be announced which will fearture the red, white and blue “Negus” colours from BA’s launch in 1973/4.
