Boeing 777-200ER - British Airways

British Airways was formed in 1972 by a merger of the British intercontinental airline BOAC (British Overseas Aircraft Corporation) and BEA (British European Airways) which maintained an intra-European network. The history of BOAC traces back to 1919, when its forerunner AT&T (Aircraft Transport and Travel) was founded. In 1939 BOAC was formed after many mergers in British aviation. After World War 2 BEA was founded as a new airline to operate European and domestic flights.

BOAC was among the first airlines operating the widebody Boeing 747 and BEA was an important customer of the Lockheed TriStar. Today BA flies a lot of Boeing widebody airliners: the Boeing 747, 767 and 777. The airline operates more than forty Boeing 777 aircraft of the -200 and -200ER versions. The aircraft on the picture is approaching the airline's homebase London Heathrow Airport.
