This edition is extra special. Our latest release is the Boeing 747-400 and British Airways took delivery way back in 1994. G-CIVE was then leased to British Asia Airways, given the name “City of Sunderland” and painted in the iconic Landor livery with a slight difference! The tailfin had Chinese characters which translated to ‘British Asia’ instead of the quartered union flag and coat of arms. After flying the skies, the aircraft returned and was updated with union livery.

The real special element to this wonderful giant is that it took part in Dreamflight, a UK charity that changes children’s lives. They do this by taking children with a serious illness or disability, on the holiday of a lifetime to Florida.

The massive 747 would take the children across the Atlantic to have the time of their lives. It was and still is a remarkable gesture.

In its lifetime, this aircraft flew 13,356 flights covering 117,086 hours. That’s around 55 million miles![1]
