The first aircraft i ever flew on was a Britannia 737-200 about 72/73 when i was 9 or 10 from Cardiff to Majorca (Mallorca in fs), and it looked just like this. No cheek from you young un's, ahh those were the days!
That's the SGA / Kittyhawk -200 uploaded only recently... you beat me to it. I've downloaded the textures but they got stuck in my backlog of uninstalled files. Very appealing livery - caught my eye instantly ...but, no I can't remember those days and I've actually never flown with Britannia Airways.
I take it they are no longer flying?
Nice shot and textures 👍
Thomson took over Brittania Airways:
I like the plane, and I've gotta get it soon. I'm looking to do my next circumnavigation in one of those
i flew with the old britania when i was 7. to majorca aswell lol from cardiff to.
they wear shit lol plane was stinking dirty they didnt clean it for 3 trips as it was late ariving for all 3
Sorry, i deleted the image a while ago. I was suprised someone answered this post now. I honestly can't remember the state of the aircraft as i was so excited about flying for the first time!
the last aircraft i flew on was a boeing 707 (i can't believe that NATO still use these) withe those tiny little engines on them, not like the awesome power of the british e-3d engines, same airframe only you feel alot safer with the bigger engines.
A couple of people have had a look here now so i thought i'd re-post a couple of shots of this classic.
heres one for the really old ( or more mature) who flew on a Comet???
Oooooh! I'm old but not that old! 😳 😀
my dad yaps on about when he went on the BOAC ones that shows his age me thinks
The old britannia 737-200's have long gone, some to south america & a couple were taken by Ryanair and based at Stansted. from memory (i think) European Aviation based at Bournmouth have one of the last Britannia 737-200 still operating painted in F1 livery and parading the regestration G-FIGP......! how do i know... well i work at Stansted Airport and have been there about 12 years.
Thanks for the insight Mikehorn! 😀
