    Default The BA Firefly is no-more :-(

    Seems that BA aren't satisfied with re-skinning pretty much the whole the of bmi fleet into their scheme already, G-EUPC is apparently back in the paintshop too...
    Regards

    We all knew this day was coming, although i did expect it to be further down the line than this. We are not even out of 2012 and they are already repainting the firefly. Just glad i photographed it whilst i could even if my photo isnt the best.

    It was good while it lasted.

    I was kind of disappointed that BA didn't do more; there was talk of a 777 in a special scheme, but it never came to pass.

    The Doves from when they were painted were due to be around for about 1 year before going back to BA colours

    not a single dove??

    the dove is at LUX at least every second day,.... (maybe as of in two weeks more often, as there will be a flight per day added) The exBMI A319 have taken over these rotations (+A320)

    at the moment of writing this post, G-DBCB (dove-exBMI) is on its way to LUX
    please take a look at my website: www.bae-atp.webs.com

    flown on: Boeing 737-400/500/700wl/800wl * B767-300ER * MD11 * B757-200 * MD82 * ERJ 145 * E-190 * Q400 * BAe ATP * Jetstream J41 recently added: B717-200

    I'm glad I captured the firefly whilst it was about. Such a great scheme and it's a shame they decided not to keep it for longer.

    Its not really the weather to go outside and hunt for a Dove.
    Especially if you don't live so close to an airport
