Default Concorde G-BOAG

Concorde c/c 214


Story here: CONCORDE SST : BRITISH AIRWAYS FLEET : 214


First Registered as G-BFKW on 27th January 1978 to British Aerospace

re-registered as G-BOAG by British Airways on 9th February 1981


A picture came to light recently of G-BOAG in "British" Negus Scheme but without Cheatlines on re-introduction in service . Just completed custom.











Previously have done G-BFKW which was British Airways Negus without Cheatlines in initial service








And finally Custom of G-BOAG grounded as a spares hack (hangar queen?) Picture from Heritage Concorde FB Page of a Wheel cover?

Beautiful work. Thank you for sharing. This aircraft has special meaning to me because I've been on it twice. (Note: I've been on it, not flown on it.) And each time I've walked on to that aircraft, I became teary-eyed and emotional. Come to think of it, once I was merely standing next to it with my mates whilst waiting in queue to tour it and I became teary-eyed. Sounds silly, doesn't it? For years I dreamt (I guess it was more of a pipe dream) of flying Concorde from JFK to LHR, with the return on a 747. I didn't have the money then to fly it. Heck, I could barely afford the $299 return fare MIA-LHR in cattle class in 1989! . So being able to see Concorde, walk inside one, touch it, brought back those memories and made me a bit sad that it's no longer flying and knowing that I'll never have the opportunity ever to fly on one. I envy anyone who has.

I'm amazed at how many 1:200 Concorde models you have! Over 70, wow! Not sure what a "Concordski" is, though.

More info on this magnificent aircraft here (hopefully the link will work - haven't posted a link on here in quite a while):

Aviaction - that’s some serious commitment to representing Concorde in all of the livery variations.

I remember seeing a Concorde at JFK just before the launch of the “World Tails”. As I recall, it was mostly white, with no Landor red stripe but with “BRITISH AIRWAYS” titles. I think the tail was white. Can anyone find a picture of Concorde looking like that?

Yes there is a picture out there all white with just the British airways titles G-BOAF???. Note: Uppercase letters indicating Landor or later. Negus was capital and lower case.
Still got to do a custom of that...that'l be really difficult....

I can’t say for sure that it was BOAF, but that was the “Colour” scheme for sure. Any idea what date that was?

Ah...good old G-BOAG. This was the first ever Concorde I saw, way back in October 1981, when she appeared at Glasgow Airport on a special charter to (IIRC) take winners of a local radio station contest on a high speed jaunt up to Iceland and back again. I never saw her again, or indeed another Concorde at all until retirement year, in 2003, when I purposefully flew to Heathrow just to catch one in action. That was 'AE' and in the retirement week, UK tour I also flew to Belfast to see one, and to Edinburgh too (both times AE). Since then I've boarded AA and AC in their museum homes and also the development model on display at Duxford. I'd love to reunite with AG though, that would be excellent. Great work on the custom there.
