The new appearance bears a striking resemblance to the retro livery that adorned the British Airways fleet from 1974 to 1980, known as the Negus design.
Yes, in that it is red, white and blue, and is on the tail of the jet.

Or perhaps to phrase it slightly differently, since both designs are based on the national flag, and adorn the tail of a jet they are inevitably similar to the flag in colour and design, and feature on the tail of a jet.

A full Union flag design bears little resemblance to the old BA scheme. What a load of b****cks! Are there any decent and proper journalists anywhere?

So it looks like today is the day when all will be revealed and heaven knows how many posts will appear. Reported on SMAS it is due to depart CBG at 1200.

Cynicism, scepticism and sexism in the same post - the effects of lockdown and heat exhaustion?

Bit tempted to go down and take a picture of Boris 1

Or as they were called at the time - "Livery"...…..

Hangar still closed as of midday. Talk of a 1400 departure was doing the rounds, but I've got nothing concrete.
