A few from over the years...

One of the three A330-200 used by BMi on the long-haul routes.

Image

One of the best schemes ever for the A319.

Image

One of the British Mediterranean (BMed) aircraft taken shortly after painting into BMi colours.

Image

The A321s were in this interim livery for many years.

Image

Another hybrid livery was this scheme based on the BA livery used on ex-BMed aircraft.

Brings a tear to my eye :sad: , left school to work at BM as a green 18 year old and then went to Air Bridge :love: ... the early 1990s in EMA were happy days.

Great to see the old BM pictures...
