Last departure for BA 747 IVY and IVB

Post by RRconway »

Hi all,

Well, thats that then.
I was there when they arrived and I was there when they left, the 747-200 was the first type I worked on in TBJ as an apprentice and my dad retired having been a flight engineer on the classis coal burners as well.
I thought I would share these pictures from last weeks departures on a gloomy wet Thursday morning, pushing back from the blast bank that I stood on to watch them arrive all those years ago, dead on 07:47....

Hope you like them,

I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.

Thanks for posting. End of an era indeed. Particularly like the 747 and Concorde tail shots.
