Description

After an instant hit with our initial launch we wanted to follow up with another “Queen of the Skies”.
Just two years later on 5th June 1997, British Airways took MSN 28700 under their wing and G-CIVM ruled the skies over the next two decades. The aircraft was based as London Heathrow, flew globally and often traversed the Atlantic Ocean.
Her last paint scheme was the oneworld livery which was featured on the side of the jumbo jet right up until 2020.
However, before the plane’s retirement in 2020, G-CIVM hit the headlines when it was reported that David Cameron’s bodyguard had left a loaded gun in one of the toilets onboard.
Thankfully everything turned out fine and the plane ended its days not long after.
Our edition comes from this very aircraft and a truly unique piece of history.
