Default GJ B777 Alternative Delft Utopia Schemes

Just completed a couple of GJ B777s in BA Utopia world tails and invite you to see how the design can differ even in the same fleet!

G-RAES and G-VIIU with the Delftblue Daybreak theme of the Netherlands for your comments -

Nice work.

The Netherlands World Tails always have been my favourites. Especially like the windmill.

From what I can see she was never in Landor - though the photo you show says it is XO I can find no other at present - so basically dunno!

Great - can I ask where you got the details from? I'll add them to my list.

I have G-BDXA as City of Cardiff and G-AWNA as Peterborough - can you confirm


Your goodies airborne today 13/02/08

Well as you would know the 741 before 1989 had names of vairous cities, but when the 400's came in they took the city names and the 100's got Water/lake names.

They first 400 got the following:

G-BNLA - London
G-BNLB - Edinburgh
G-BNLC - Cardiff
G-BNLD - Belfast

Quite PC I guess. So XA Couldn't have been Cardiff, XO was the only one missing from my list I find I found it in this month's Wings World! It would also explain Why G-BDXH changed It's name from Edinburgh to Elgin

have sent you a copy of my list of names which came I believe from an engineer with BA, or someone who had collated a lot of data from just before the Utopia schemes came into general use.

Thanks Mate, Didn't have many of the 400's on my list or the 100's orginal names. I find it quite funny there are two "City of Bangor".

Just a few more to come:

G-AWNE Derwent Water
G-AWNM Ullswater
G-AWNN Lowes Water
G-BBPU Virginia Water
G-BDPV Blea Water
