Blast From The Past

Walking through town at lunchtime, I was surprised, and pleased to see the old BOAC name and logo on this guy's bag.  What spoilt it for me though, was the fact that the bag was red, whereas it should have been dark blue.

For those of you who don't know BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) was a British airline in the 1960s. It used to fly VC10s and the very first Concorde sported the airlines colours. They merged with BEA (British European Airways)  in the early 1970s and became British Airways. Which according to advertisers is the world's favourite airline.

If you are interested in the airline's history, here's a useful WEBLINK.
