Livery

In this review, regarding the photos, we will limit ourselves to AP-BCO as she was known under her so-called "PIA 90s livery". In 1991, designed by Negus and Negus of London, PIA unveiled its sporty 90s look. The top of the fuselage was white with the title "Pakistan International" reduced to just one word: "Pakistan" in green colour. PIA's initials in stylised Urdu were retained and painted in grass-green on the upper fuselage of the 747s and on the lower fuselage of other aircraft in the fleet. The colour of the fins consisted of the white PIA initials on an all-green fin with a white-coloured leading edge. On the underside of the fuselage, a broad green band covered the belly of the aircraft and was cut off to the front by three angled chevrons of dark green, grass green and light blue. The dark green chevron represented the famous PIA green and the beauty and fertility of Pakistan. Sporty grass green and light blue chevrons, a symbol of sports, highlighted PIA's sponsorship of all kinds of games.

In 1997, to celebrate Pakistan's 50th year of independence, PIA named its aircraft after various Pakistani cities and monuments. The names along with a specially designed logo were affixed under the cockpit windows of the aircraft. AP-BCO received the name "City of Mardan", a city in the Mardan District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province in Pakistan. Mardan is of great cultural importance because of its location in a region rich in archaeological sites.

Operational history

1989 meant the start of a new era for hundreds and thousands of Pakistanis setttled in Scotland, Yorkishire, Manchester and Birmingham. Whereas for most people living near Manchester International Airport, the landing of a Boeing 747 was not much more than yet another pass by of a big screaming metal bird, the first arrival of a PIA jumbo marked the end of an era during which Pakistanis were obliged to make a trip to London when they wanted to travel to their homeland. AP-BCO was given the honour to perform the first long-haul flight between Pakistan and a "non-London airport in the UK". The first routes offered by PIA where from Islamabad to Manchester, at that very moment only the second UK airport to be served by PIA. The flight was sheduled twice a week and alternating between Dubai and Copenhagen on it's way to Islamabad. This shedule continued to exist as the only one between Islamabad and Manchester until 1996, when PIA decided to add a second route: the Manchester-Karachi-Lahore flight. It was not until 1998 however that the inaugural flight for this route took place, and this was also served by a B747-200, wearing the livery of the model discussed in this topic. By the end of the nineties, Manchester became PIA's transit hub for flights from Pakistan to New York and Toronto. These were operated by B747-200, B747-300 and B747 Combi aircraft. AP-BCO has also been providing loyal service on this route on a regular basis. However, for her, the story ended shortly afterwards. In 1999 PIA leased five ex-Cathay Pacific 747-367s to replace the oldest of the PIA 747-200s. As from the 1st of May during that year PIA's presence at Manchester Airport changed considerably, as the airline officialy startet phasing out her aged 747-200 classics with more modern and less noisy 747-300 aircraft.

AP-AYV, AP-BCM, AP-BCN and AP-BCO were grounded. The situation they were in was terrible at that moment, and it was no longer justifiable to fly them unless a very thorough refurbishment operation would change this. As for AP-BCO, the airframe was not immediately and officialy withdrawn from use. Between 2000 and 2003, it was even used again, albeit less frequently, but PIA needed more transport capacity, especially during the annual Hajj period. AP-BCO flew her last flight to Lahore in May 2003.

Final days

So as technical problems continued popping up, an official and definitive withdraw from use came in march 2004, and two years after that, she was eventually scrapped. AP-BCO underwent her sad fate in a very quick way, almost like a final blow of mercy, as a gratitiude for the many years she served with dignity and loyalty. Already by the end of february 2006, on the aircraft boneyard near Karachi Airport, al that remained form her was a chunk of the belly and the two main landing gears, the rest was already all gone. It went so quickly because many parts were taken off AP-BCO by maintenance, done on other B747s, in order to keep them airworthy. Every time the maintenance teams ran out of a part that was not available in their regular stock, they called in AP-BCO, which made that only in a couple of months every last drop of juice was squeezed out of her. By the end of that year, none of any of her remaining parts, the whole of which formed only a messy pile of old metal, were still recognisable as coming from AP-BCO.

Video clips

(Below) On January 16 1994, AP-BCO took off from Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow, during flight PK-701 from Islamabad to Manchester via Moscow. After takeoff , the cockpit crew was unable to retract the aircraft's landing gear due to some technical problem. She was able return safely to Moscow Airport. A video of this event can be seen here :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SNYZQVOAgg

(Below) De following video shows AP-BCL taxiing and taking off from Manchester airport, most probably somewhere during the early nineties. It is wearing the same livery as AP-BCO discussed here, so it gives a nice impression of what the bird looked in real live at that time.

(Below) Note the specially designed sticker below the cockpit windows. AP-BCO "City of Mardan" was wearing this sticker in 1997 to celebrate Pakistan's 50th anniversary of independence.

Wonderful write up and excellent photos. I am glad your PIA collection is growing. 🙂

While this livery was one of the many PIA had I have to say my favourite tail was this one. Yes there were the Provincial and other tails yet this green one on a full white fuselage really stood out.

Excellent addition Deephalo! One thing I really like about it is the single blue stripe amidst all the white and green. It's something different, yet it sort of binds the whole livery together in my humble opinion.

Thanks a lot Freakie. I makes me happy to hear you enjoy this approach of reviewing a new model.

You must be a "brother from another mother"... You have the same taste as me.

It is the Pashmina and Kashikari livery. It was also called just "Pashmina", but it is essentially a mix between these two styles.
Whereas you find Pashmina mostly on floral patterns that are applied on dresses or scarfs, my wife has a whole closet full, Kashikari is more often seen on woven carpets, on tiles or porcelain work (often in blue).

Unfortunately only a few 747s, I think only one A310 and a couple of F27's have worn these colours, and also only for a few months.
I don't know why, but very soon the tail fins were painted solid green again, and everything returned to the Negus and Negus colours.

Your humble opinion is very interesting. I have never analysed it in this way, but your comment certainly makes sense.
What I also have is that the more I look at those chevrons, the more I see the "sporty touch" in them. We could apply those colours to a sports shoe just as they are...

Deephalo you know more about Pakistan than me lol. Yes that is what is was called the Pashmina scheme. Your wife must quite a few Pashminas herself. A lot of wonderful tails on PIA all part of the wonderful culture, carvings you find on monuments and the vibrancy of the different provinces

Did you know KLM has a 747-400 called "City of Karachi". Reg is PH-BFK 😉. However it does not come close to your AP-BFX "Karachi Green Turtle 🐢 Waters".👍. I so do hope to own that model someday. (not your's &#x1f609

As they say, less is more and this certainly applies to the design. We could pitch the idea to Adidas, I'm sure they would love it

Anyway, hope to see more PIA additions to your collection in the near future. Cheers!

Thank you for this nice compliment Freakie. You know, if you ask the average Westerner who has ever visited Pakistan which of all the countries he has visited has surprised him most positively, most of them will undoubtedly say Pakistan. This is not only true for myself. Just look at the Youtube clips Eva Zu Beck made (she really knows how to make movies) of her transit through Pakistan : PAKISTAN 💚 THE MOST EPIC COUNTRY.
Love for a country is the best ingredient to learn a lot about it quickly.

Thanks Goldie.

Regarding green jumbos, you are correct. They are not many. The only other one that I just spotted in my display cabinet is the 747-100 Aer Lingus (EI-BED), which is also one of my favourites.

Very much appreciated.

I think that this background information adds interesting value to the aircraft reviews. I'm going to be honest, I can't say much about the models themselves, except that I like them. With the exception of real errors, I am not the person who will notice a line that is 1/10 mm too high or too low. Even things that are so wrong that they are unacceptable for a scale model, I will not quickly notice myself. For this reason, I also appreciate very much the information on this forum when it comes to real errors.

So, as for me, I will look up information left and right about the real model and write a story about it. The advantage is that most models have a nice story behind them...

What is most shocking and bold is this Swiss National who is there with his wife and two small kids. Of course the kids don't go everywhere but it's the first with kids in Pakistan. Kudos to him and the other vloggers there currently. He's now currently in Karachi

Peshawar once a not so popular destination even for Pakistanis, is now being considered as the friendliest city in Pakistan. The Pakhtuns (Malala is a Pakthun) are known for their hospitality and loyalty.

Thanks for sharing this Freakie.
I watched the Lahore epsiodes yesterday evening with my wife, who grew up in this city.

Dont know if you already saw Peter Santenello's thread : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...iAV6rLn-850xw9
Anyways, this discussion makes me wonder if sharing Youtube channels (whether about aircraft or not) in General sqauwk talk using a dedicated thread would be an interesting idea...

I can agree with that. I've been there too. Was indeed a very interesting experience. Islamabad is more "modern" and westernised.

Dank je wel Thijs! Thank you very much for these kind words.
And I think we have something in common: whereas you are located at AMS approach (as I can read under your avatar), I am located at BRU/EBBR approach.
