Beautiful, this is the definitive BA 747-400 scheme. The current scheme is nice, but this is elegantly classic.

The BEA livery, which was the second in the series... also really classy.

At least they aren't doing a "world tails" retro...

Are they going to paint more older liveries onto the fleet, or is the 3 done so far going to be it?

It would be nice if they did this livery too.

This one is the next and last one. Will be a Boeing 747-400 as well.
In the battle between aeroplanes and the ground. The ground has yet to lose.

Aviation would be great, if it wouldn't be for passengers.

Love it. Personally this scheme is still better than the current waving flag.

Yeah, I can only imagine how good the A380 / B787 & A350 will look in this scheme

The various liveries all look much of a muchness to me, except in this last example I really think that the "a" in airways needs to be capitalized.
