The ‘saved’ British Airways Boeing 747 in “BOAC” livery may be scrapped.
The Boeing 747-436 with BOAC livery arrived at St. Athan on May 27th 2019 and still currently stored there.
Boeing 747-400 G-BYGC was the first of three BA jumbos to be painted into a special livery to celebrate 100 years of British Airways.
The aircraft with registration G-BYGC was maintained as a heritage piece by aviation specialists ecube in the BOAC ‘Gold Speedbird’ livery used between 1963 and 1974.
Bur rumours it is goring to be parted out and scrapped are possibly true.
Despite being ‘saved’ during the pandemic, and stored at St Athan pending visitor access, a lack of funding means the retro jet will be scrapped.
Sources close to the subject have confirmed to UK Aviation News that eCube is seeking to part out the jumbo jet.
