Heathrow Aircraft - past and present.

Saturday 5th December 2020. Earlier this week and building on the success of the #SaveLandor campaign; British Airways officially announced that the Landor livery747, G-BNLY would be preserved at Dunsfold Aerodrome, the home of fellow 747 G-CIVW which flew here on 22nd October 2020. (See film on my channel).
Today G-BNLY left Cardiff airport where it has been in store since June and took the 40 minute flight to Dunsfold as flight BA 9154. The aircraft flew around the airport before making the approach and landing into the prevailing wind, landing on Runway 07. I've captured these moments in this film standing at the dead centreline viewpoint from Runway 07/25.
This aircraft began life in the Landor scheme, so it is especially fitting that it should have been preserved, representing perhaps the finest period in BAs aviation history:- "The world's favourite airline".
At the end we hear Dunsfold Tower welcoming the crew and giving a fitting testimony to this beautiful aircraft. Enjoy this short film capturing this historic occasion.
