British Airways - 100th Anniversary

I'm quite sure that most of our readers are aware British Airways is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019. 

Dj's Aviation YouTube channel recently posted a very nicely narrated 10 minute video detailing the important dates in the century-long history of one of the world's most recognizable brands. 

The video also shows some very nice footage of the Boeing 747-400 with the BOAC retro livery. Registration G-BYGC has been in the BA fleet since January 1999 and the plan is for it to remain in the classic livery until its scheduled retirement in 2023.

I'm a big fan of airlines recognizing special anniversaries by decking out an aircraft with classy looking retro paint jobs (see NL # 1341 - Fin 264) and I think that this is one of the best that I have seen. Very simple and dignified.
