British Airways proudly unveils a poppy decal on a Boeing 747 fuselage, as a symbol of remembrance for the fallen. On the 11th of November, at 10.55am, all British Airways staff paused ground operations and engines to observe the two minute silence.
In the centenary year of the end of the First World War, the 8ft by 8ft poppy will be displayed on the aircraft as it flies to numerous British Airways destinations around the world.
Tom Deary, a British Airways Engineer, Sergeant in 381 Squadron and a former RAF Aircraft Technician, said: “It’s important that our aircraft carries the poppy as it is a national symbol of remembrance, and as a national carrier we should take pride in remembering those that have fallen in all conflicts, new or old, for our country.
