Default Attention manufactures British Airways B747-436 G-CIVA

Well, as many of you know, we're passing through an Olympic season and British Airways has taken advantage of the situation to celebrate the games with a special modification to one its B747, the registration is G-CIVA and it will be used to transport the British athletes back to London next Monday August 22.

So far, the GB Team is second place with more than 22 gold medals in Rio 2016. "victoRIOus" will be arriving to London next Wednesday August 23.

I hope JC Wings is making this one too, it could be a great addition for all those BAW collectors, including me.

I'd definitely be up for this, loved the Olympics so far, and so much achievement from the Team GB athletes, I have the original BA 'Pride' and I'd love to add a second Team GB Jumbo to the fleet.

This post inspired me to change my signature too, thanks Erik

Count me in too. The original version has good paint but decals for the "pride" sticker (as can be seen in Andy's pic). A JC tampo printed rendition of the 2016 version would go nicely alongside.

BTW - does anyone know if there are any logos on the other side of the plane, or just the side that can be seen when boarding? The old "pride" seemed to be single sided...

The G-BNLD registration markings were also all decals, nonetheless it looks fine to me. I think the original donor aircraft was one of the IF200 G-CIVZ union flag birds.

As for the real thing (G-CIVA this time around), I imagine there will be a good amount of photos of her in the coming days, though I imagine that the extra decals on the plane are only on the starboard nose for press photos as was the Pride bird from Beijing '08.
