With British Airways having retired their Queen of the Skies Boeing 747 fleet during the Covid pandemic, we are taking orders for our fuselage section clocks, mirrors and wall art now. This is your opportunity to obtain a little piece of aviation history.
Offered in the original paint scheme, a brushed or highly polished finish; the original outer window pane is laser-etched, with some scope for personalisation, and finished in ‘Landor’ blue, matt black or the original clear finish with white or black acrylic finishing applied to the etching.
Clocks have been by far an away the most popular option and a silent sweep, battery powered quartz clock is fitted. Some clients have chosen favourite photographs, acrylic mirrors or simply left the window original - or even out altogether!
Each window piece is fitted with a brass hanging point that will comfortably support its weight, which varies from around 10 to 15 kg depending on from where in the fuselage it is harvested.
The approximate dimesnions of a double fuselage section is 37 by 37 inches, but please expect slight variation due to the nature of hand-crafted products.
Single, triple or quadruple window sections are also available.
Each section of fuselage is unique in size and shape, bearing the hallmarks of tens of millions of miles flown and thousands of hours in the air.
Expect some dents, corrosion & scratches to the aluminium associated with their service and the tear down operations, along with occasional scratches and crazing to the window panes, which sometimes also have a ‘Clearvue’ coating. This was intended to extend their operational life but does occasionally shown signs of breakdown and wear. Nevertheless, this is a unique opportunity to obtain a highly original part of this iconic aeroplane.
Please message us with your specific requests for particular airframes and etching and we’ll be happy to quote you in detail for your chosen size and style. Overseas buyers are advised to message us beforehand to confirm shipping costs.
BA’s G-CIVD, G-CIVH, G-CIVK, G-CIVU, G-BYGA, G-BYGD, G-BYGE, G-BYGF & G-BYGG are in the workshop now, but stocks are very limited.
