BOAC -It is 3 out of 3 for South Africa!
It is 3 out of 3 for South Africa!
TodMonday 29 April 2019 the third B747 painted in a retro livery, as part of BA’s 100th birthday, touched down with a puff of smoke in Johannesburg at 08:53. Cape Town have been spoilt by receiving two of these, the Negus and Landor liveries, but Johannesburg was the envy of aviation enthusiasts.
G-BYGC where scheduled to land in Johannesburg on Sunday but as things happen, this was changed to today. G-BYGC was went into the paint shop on 18 February 2019 and was unveiled to the world on the same day. She mostly visited the USA but as BA implemented their summer schedule, aviation enthusiasts became excited and hoping that G-BYGC appears on Johannesburg schedules.
G-BYGC is 20 old, is a B747-436 with serial number 25823. Our Negus arrival coverage can be seen here https://tinyurl.com/y2owgawt and our Landor arrival coverage can be seen here https://tinyurl.com/y6m5rwj2 It took some time for us to see the BOAC here in South Africa but it was worth the wait. Hoping for many more visits!
