Long Ago Plane Tails

Often when I am at an airport I take pictures of the planes on the runways or parked at the terminals.

Here is some interesting tail art from a trip I took to South Africa in 2001. It was a trip where I didn’t fly on my usual airline.

These were all from a special series of art on British Airways planes.

This one was know as Kogutkie Lowickie and represented Poland.

In the background you can see a South African Airways plane.

In the background you can see the new paint scheme livery fo BA that was introduced in 1999.

The flight from LHR to SFO that landed in Canada on my way home was in the new livery.

I have a few more from this series that I may share sometime, so perhaps there will be a sequel.
