Notes:

First flight April 4 1997, delivered British Airways April 23 as G-CPEN. Between 1997 and 2001 BA was pushing the so called Utopia (World Heritage, or Ethnic) liveries, however that idea later turned to be controversial. Decision was brought to revise the project but at that time already about 170 aircraft of the then BA fleet has been wearing the new design. BA new CEO ordered all the rest of the fleet still wearing the previous, Landor livery, to be repainted into the “Union Jack” scheme, designed within (as part of) the Utopia colors for the BA Concorde. Meanwhile in Budapest, British Airways moved to the freshly delivered Terminal 2B, so -CPEN is seen here taxiing from T2B to 31L to take-off for Heathrow with her new, Union Flag (Chatham Dockyard) tail. Stored December 2009. May 31 2011 FedEx bought as N952FD, converted to Freighter (F) May 2012. Scanned from an old slide.
