British Airways Celebrates One Year to Go Until the 2012 Olympics
The day is already more than halfway over in London, and it's a special day to be sure. We're now one year away from the start of the London 2012 Olympics and one of the celebrations is up in the air. Literally.
Although we already showed you the Olympics-themed airplane livery of our (and Concorde's) dreams, reality is that British Airways unveiled their special Olympics livery today with a flight over Olympic Park on its way to New York. It's no Concorde; it's an Airbus A318, BA flight 001 between LCY and JFK (with a brief stop in Shannon, Ireland).
If you watch the video above, you'll realize that the only special thing they've done to this plane to give it some Olympics spirit was put "One Year To Go" on its belly, visible to those on the ground when it's flying low enough, but not visible when it's actually taxiing around airports. Too bad.
