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
René

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.

Same here Sam, got it but not the best shot I've ever taken, would liked to have had another crack at it

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

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
