Default British Airways 747-436 G-CIVY

Hello,

Here is the ARD 200 (Inflight 200) British Airways G-CIVY 747-436 in Chatham Dockyard,

As you should know this 747 was the last British Airways to leave
London Heathrow,

I was there to say goodbye in the pouring rain,

reheat101.

Lovely new arrival. I'd considered buying it. Then I thought perhaps I'd buy the Hogan version instead, but it seems to me the blue Hogan uses on their BA models is too light.

Looks great. I have one on pre-order. A sad end to a magnificent career. LHR just wont be the same without them.

Very true. My friend Moin wants to take me plane spotting when I return to London later this year, but I told him it's not going to be the same without seeing BA 747s. Not just BA 747s, but 747s from many airlines.

You must go Randy, even if the 744s are no more. Looking forward to pics 👍

If you get the very first release of Hogan's BA 747 - G-BNLT, it has the correct blue hue.

I hate to always be the black sheep in every post by posting a negative comment but i feel perhaps there are others who might feel the same but may not want to say anything so i will speak up. Anyways, i feel like the cockpit windows are to low! See the allignment of the upper deck windows to the cockpit windows in photos.

Thanks! I noticed on DiMA there were 2 versions of G-BNLT. But I've discovered that finding any of the 3 Hogan BA B744 models at a decent price is a challenge!

Selling it as ‘the last from LHR’ is stretching the money making a bit...

What a pointless comment, nobody is forcing you to buy it and it is simply stating that it was the last BA B744 to depart LHR. There is no cost premium associated with it and it is the same price as all of the other BA 744's that they have released recently.


Lovely model and looking forward to picking mine up at the weekend.

747-400 with RB engines seem like a minority
