The lucky aircraft, registration G-BNLY, will come out of the paint shop with the “Landor” livery which featured on BA's planes between 1984-1997. Without giving too much of my age away, this brings back so much nostalgia for me as it was the predominant livery of my childhood years. It was also the livery of the Concorde before its retirement.
G-BNLY will also be re-named ‘City of Swansea’, the same name she used to have when she adorned the Landor colours.
For context, this is what the Landor design used to look like back in the day.
Like her BOAC counterpart it will carry this livery until its retirement in 2023. There is still one more paint job we're expecting to find out about. I do hope they go for those ‘ethnic' tail fins!
