Aviationtags first Speedbird, which was also an Olympic pigeon: the former British Airways Airbus A319-100 with the registration G-EUOH. In December 2001, the MSN 1604 was delivered to the British flag carrier by Airbus in a one-class configuration with 132 seats.
During its 17 years of active service for British Airways, G-EUOH had the privilege of being one of only nine aircraft with a special paint job between 2012 and 2015 for the London Olympic Games in 2012. The design by designer Pascal Anson was reminiscent of a golden dove and also extended over the wings and engines.
In 2015, the MSN 1604 returned to its classic British Airways livery and was in use for the Oneworld member until 2019. We have succeeded in preserving a piece of British aviation and Olympic history for posterity in the form of our Aviationtag Edition.
