To celebrate its centenary, British Airways is repainting four aircraft into special liveries to reflect heritage airlines and past liveries. The first aircraft, 747 G-BYGC, wears British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) livery. An A319 in British European Airways (BEA) livery, a 747 in Landor livery, and a 747 in Negus livery complete the line up.
