BCT Support BA with 100 Year Heritage Livery

BCT Aviation Maintenance is proud to announce that we are providing engineering support on the British Airways (BA) new Heritage Livery Designs to celebrate 100 years of British Airways.

On the 25thof August, this British Carrier will have been in operation for 100 years, to Commemorate this Achievement BA will be marking this Special Occasion by repainting a select few of its aircraft fleet in Liveries from key points in the company’s long history.

BCT Aviation Maintenance have partnered with British Airways since 2017 on this top secret project and is proud to be a part of such a momentous occasion.

To fulfil the requirements of this project, BCT Aviation Maintenance also succeeded in the challenge of gaining B747 Approval once again exclusively for this project.

So far there has been three of the heritage livery designs released in the series and BCT Aviation Maintenance have carried out the maintenance and engineering for all three. The first of the retro livery designs was the B747 original BOAC livery, this was originally used between 1964 and 1974, the new repaint is set to stay until 2023.

The second of the designs was applied to an Airbus A319, to resemble British European Airways (BEA) livery introduced between 1959 and 1968. The third Design in the series has been allocated to another B747 in the Landor Scheme livery which was originally used between 1984 and 1997.

Please keep an eye on our social media posts as our support continues for BA and other special projects in the near future!
