When was this photo taken with British airways flying in BOAC colours.?

Probably 3 or 4 days ago ...

BA is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and used BOAC livery in that plane. See more here:

Always think the BOAC livery has more class than current BA livery
Superb photograph with an excellent vantage point capture!

I still have my BOAC Junior Jet Club Log Book and Wings! Love that livery.

'Back in the US, back in the US, back in the USSR!'

Relatives told stories of trips on BOAC to Europe, and how crazy it was there then. It's not crazy, it's a different country.

Oh, flew in from Miami Beach BOAC.
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man I had a dreadful flight
I'm back in the USSR.
You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the USSR. (Yeah)

The first BOAC/BA livery I ever saw and still the classic look.
