Earlier, we had reported that British airways will save the last three of its remaining B747 from scrapheap. Yesterday, the airline’s last B747 flew for the final time.

The airline’s retro B747 in the special BOAC livery (registered as G-BYGC) completed a short flight from Cardiff to St Athan yesterday.

To mark the special occasion of the carrier’s last ever Boeing B747 flight, the airline gave the flight number BA747. The aircraft took from Cardiff at 13:37 and after flying a loop over St Athan, the aircraft landed at 13:54, bringing a 50 years history to an end.
