G-AWNA was the first 747 to be delivered to a British airline and fly on a 'G' registration when BOAC took delivery of the aircraft on the 20th April 1970 at an original cost of $21 Million. This 'Jumbojet' was the 23rd 747 built (s/n 19761).

In 1974 BOAC and BEA merged to become British Airways, and "November Alpha" flew with them until being withdrawn from use. Throughout its career, the 747 wore three different names: "Sir Richard Grenville" (1979–1984), "City of Peterborough" (1984–1989), and finally "Colliford Lake".

G-AWNA flew her last commercial flight on 31st October 1998, flying from Philadelphia to London-Heathrow as BA068. At the time of retirement G-AWNA was the oldest and longest serving 747 still operated by its original airline owner.

Over her 28 year flying with BOAC and British Airways she spent a total of 102,151 hours in the air, making 20,919 take-offs and landings and travelled over 51 million miles.

Sadly, this historic aircraft was cut up at Bruntingthorpe in 1999, this is when the rear section of the aircraft was was removed and later transported to a small industrial area close to London-Gatwick Airport, this is where she was used for crew training and cabin fire drills until around 2014.

In 2019 Airskinz was fortunate enough to discover the aircraft section shortly before it was about to be removed and scrapped. Now you can own a piece of true aviation history.

Boeing 747-100 Airskinz

Overall very appalled with the service, placed an order back in January and heard nothing regarding delivery or dispatch for over 2 weeks, all attempts to get in touch went unanswered and I ended up asking my bank for a refund, the order has never arrived and I have never heard anything back from Airskinz, what was meant to be a nice souvenir for my Stepdad who has always loved the 747 and is a lifelong aviation enthusiast resulted in an overall terrible experience and I don't intend on using this service ever again, feels like a borderline scam, taking my money and not even responding to my attempts for updated or clarification would leave 0 stars but the least I can give is 1.

Magnificent piece of history!

Superb engraving on the various tags of B747 G-AWNA by Airskinz. Some of them consist of several layers of skin. Looking forward for more!

Waiting to receive my skin

Covid postage seems a nightmare and I am still waiting to receive my skin. I had asked if a keyring piece could be made available but never had a reply…
