Default Another British Airways A320 scheme

Just out of the paint shop is this British Airways Airbus A320neo, G-TTNA, in a " BA Better World" blue scheme highlighting climate change. Today there is a press launch at Heathrow for this aircraft.

Aeroclassics and Gemini Jets, the race is on to see who will be first to make this in 1/400.

Most probably GJ first, but maybe Panda too.

Seems likely this is harmony with the global climate conference in Glasgow this November ? I shall expect to see it at GLA soon then.

Great looking scheme, reminds me of the dove scheme in a way. Not sure I’ll get it but it’s on my watchlist.

Nice but

Gemini mould has a wonky cockpit
Aeroclassics will probably print some random titles
Phoenix could be good.
Phoenix Firefly & Dove was way better tha AC's (had both but kept the Phoenix')

Hah, yes, sadly there is no truly "green' airliner flying as yet. But as alluded to earlier, this is really just some marketing spin tied into the November climate conference in Glasgow saying "Hey look at us, this is a much more fuel efficient aircraft than the others and we got some !"

People have to realize the biggest issue is their personal use of Cars and Road transportation and not cows farting in a field
Planes don't emit anywhere near the pollution if compared with the standard marker of per "Passenger per seat mile" So stop knocking planes.
Coincidently I have a pollution meter to measure PM2.5 and PM10 Partuclates, as well as others pollutants. Outside our shop car park, in a residential area, in Northampton UK - today measured in the Red Zone, exceeding WHO guidelines and the worst level (11) by DEFRA standards - This can only be Vehicle pollutants as Northampton does not have any large pollution emitting factories - and it certainly isn't planes flying overhead at 30,000ft.
The average person on the street does not care about using their cars for convenience, and more seriously running their engines, while stationary (illegal and £60 fine)

Those whom are licensed will get the correct colors from BA, and the bottomfeeders will take some wild guesses!

Sure there is; a nice glider with a prop powered by a bicycle pedal and chain! May not be able to fly very far, or fast, but there it is!

Of course the supreme Hypocrites, like John Kerry, will show up to the Glasgow conference in their private jets, dining on beef steak from those evil farting cows!!

Not to derail the point of the jet, but 10% of US emissions come from agriculture due to the carbon intensive nature of rice farming and cattle raising. Methane is something like six times as powerful as CO2 when it comes to dissolving Ozone. The millions of cow farts do add up. But the real fun is when the Siberia permafrost which has methane bubbles in it starts melting. Those bubbles make the cumulative cow farts looks like nothing.

My apologies. Methane is 25 times more potent. Was correct about US Ag production emissions

'Posts photo of cool new livery' - thread turns into a environmental debate war-zone.
Come-on, what is this? Facebook? With all the crazy greenies going rogue commenting on every post which shows any amount of environmental pollution (even if it's an improvement) on their ethically produced iPhones.

I said airliner dear boy "airliner". Although that said, and again here in Scotland, there is an ongoing research project between Loganair and Cranfield University aimed at battery powering a BN Islander for its regular 2-3 minute airborne Orkney inter Island hops.

Back to the British Airways aircraft though, I gather it's doing The mid afternoon shuttle to Glasgow tomorrow (Friday) and I'm off work, so a fulsome set of photos will appear shortly.

She's in Larnaca at the moment Big Al and looks like that's the overnight stop, so should land at LHR around 1115 tomorrow morning. If so I'm going to pop down there for that and hopefully dodge any rain that appears

Oh no, she's coming back tonight Big Al, she's already on her way. You were right, she'd on the Glasgow tomorrow morning and hopefully back on the one that lands at 1415 at LHR. Might dodge the storms predicted and head down there.
