Heavy Out of Heathrow - Lockheed TriStar Original Painting
British Airways Lockheed TriStar Original Aviation Art Paintings by Stephen Chard GAvA
British Airways bought the long-range variant of the Lockheed Tristar
for its London- Abu Dhabi route.
The last in the long line of Lockheed airliners, the aircraft was hampered by delays to the Rolls Royce engines that had been selected for use in what was, for its time, the most technologically advanced airliner in the world.
BA first acquired the Tristar in 1974 in the form of the -100 and -1 variant but it was the -500 variant which was favoured by British Airways and first flew in 1978. The aircraft would serve until the early nineties. Several aircraft would also serve with the Royal Air Force and later operators included British Airtours and British Caledonian.
This original, framed and varnished painting comes ready to hang and measures 76cm x 61cm. Could interested parties please contact us by email to arrange payment and delivery
