  1. 757 G-BIKH (22179/0024)

    This aircraft arrived at London Stansted for repainting on 23 May 1998 flying London Heathrow – London Stansted as BA9283P.

    After roll out on 30 May 1998 this aircraft was ferried London Stansted – London Heathrow as BA9267P, its first flight with the Golden Khokhloma tail.

    The flight number of the London Heathrow – Stockholm Arlanda flight on the following day (31 May) was BA772.

    The last BA commercial flight of this aircraft was indeed Milan Linate – London Heathrow (BA569) but it was on 22 and not 20 March 2001.

    Its ferry flight starting on 12 January 2002 was indeed from Mobile Downtown (BFM) to East Midlands where it arrived on the 13th but the flight concluded with an East Midlands – Brussels leg later that day.

    All the best
