B.E.A. Red square colour scheme

Learned contributors,
How many and which BAC 1-11 series 510s flew in BEA red square scheme ?
Did any Trident 2s actually fly in red square scheme ?
Thanks in anticipation, pictures appreciated.
Be lucky
David

The following Trident 2s flew in the BEA scheme :- G-AVFA, B, C, D, E, F, G, H.
These BAC 111s also flew in the BEA scheme :- G-AVMH, I, J, K,

There's plenty of photos to be found by a quick search on Google, just search by the registration letters and you will find them. Also https://www.airliners.net/ is very useful if you use their search facility (by registration letters).

Have fun and stay safe.

A number of super 1-11 didn’t have a logo for IGS services on behalf of Air France in Berlin.

I think it was most of the G-AVM. fleet of 1-11-510s that have the dark blue tail with "Super One-eleven" printed across it. They really looked pretty bland, and I can never recall having see one with the "red square" tail logo at BHX or LHR. I am surprised there were as many as 4. I recall logging all the the fleet in my spotting days, save for 'MR which alluded me.

All of the G-AVM.. 1-11's had the blue "Super One-Eleven" scheme for Berlin operations.

Yes, IIRC the first public unveiling of the then new BEA "Speedjack" scheme was when G-AVFI was displayed, fresh from the factory, at the 1968 Farnborough show.

The person who created the BEA red square

Sadly, the person responsible for designing the BEA red square livery has recently died.

I do hope she was aware that BA had painted an Airbus A319 into BEA red square colours even if the wings could not be replicated exactly as they were in the 1960ís.
