BA 747

British Airways’ last two Boeing 747s based at Heathrow left the airport on their last flight.

The jumbo jets left West London Airport just after 8:35 a.m. CET on Thursday when more than 18,000 people watched a live stream of the event on Facebook.

The airline has preferred to withdraw from its fleet of 747-400 aircraft due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the aviation sector.
