To make sense of the present, you need to understand the past. So here are special series we have run on aviation history and nostalgia.

100 Years Of British Airways

In the summer of 2019, we published a 100 part series on the history of BA and its predecessor airlines including Imperial Airways, British Overseas Airways Corporation and British European Airways.

You can read the full series in numerical order, by theme or by decade.

The Boeing 747 At BOAC And British Airways

Following the premature retirement of the Boeing 747 in 2020 due to COVID-19, we published a seven part series of the story of the Boeing 747 at BOAC and BA.

A History Of British Airways Advertising

In April 2020, we published a ten part series on British Airways advertising from 1974 and 2020.

This series highlights the evolution of the airline and how changing societal and travel trends were reflected in its advertising.

100 Years Of Qantas

To mark Qantas’ centenary in 2019, we published a seven part series on 100 years of flights between the UK and Australia, which were pioneered by Qantas and BA’s predecessor airlines Imperial Airways and BOAC.
