London - British Airways now presents its fourth and final aircraft with retro livery. It's a Boeing 747-400 with the airline’s original red, white and blue color scheme which dates back to 1973.

The 747-400 registered G-CIVB is now wearing the original “Negus” livery of the airline, which was used between 1973 and 1980. It was created when BOAC and BEA merged to establish British Airways.

British Airways revealed four aircraft with heritage liveries this year as part of its 100th-year celebrations. These aircraft are respectively two more Boeing 747-400s in BOAC and Landor liveries, and an Airbus A319 painted with the “Red Square” livery of BEA.
