  1. G-BIKN (22186, 0050)

    23 January 1985 first 757 delivered in new British Airways (Landor) livery.

    23 November 2001 ferried London Heathrow – Lasham for storage in full Rendezvous livery with all titles still present.

    The customer acceptance flight at London Heathrow on 8 October 2002 was BA9277E.

    Sold to Barclays Mercantile Business Finance on 11 January 2003.

    This aircraft was not painted in DHL Red livery. Having entered service for DHL soon after 31 July 2003 it was reported at Helsinki on 8 August and 2 September and at Hamburg on 8 October in DHL Yellow livery.

    The last record I have of this aircraft before the application of supplementary F1 titles is at Stuttgart on 4 August 2004.

    The first record I have of this aircraft with supplementary ‘F1 Formula 1 Official Logistics’ titles is at Gothenburg on 5 October 2004.
