Special British Airways Series
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.
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.
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.
