    British Eagle colour scheme

    Assuming the shade of red was constant throughout its history ie Eagle Airways etc, can anyone please confirm the actual shade of red in the colour scheme ie: name or paint ref no.

    Many thanks

    I believe the red shade was constant. Why not talk to whoever painted G-APSA ?

    Will "Lectra" or someone from Coventry pick this one up ?

      This brings back memories. A British Eagle Britannia was the first passenger plane I ever flew in.
      I assume ex-RAF, as it had rearward facing seats.
      Engine Failure:.... A condition which occurs when all fuel tanks mysteriously become filled with air.

        All the British Eagle Britannia came from other airlines, the majority from BOAC. They were used extensively on contract to the MoD, therefore fitted with rear-ward facing seats, which remained in the aircraft if then used on civilian services.
