British Midland Airways
Airlines Series, Vol 3
British Midland Airways existed under different identities for over 70 years, during which time it grew from a flying training school into a scheduled transatlantic airline. With the prime routes dominated by British Airways and its predecessors, it had to diversify, and one product of this was its ‘instant-airline’ concept, which saw its Boeing 707 aircraft flying in the liveries of many African and Middle Eastern companies. In 2011, after a number of years of financial losses, the carrier was absorbed into British Airways. With over 140 images, this book charts the rise and fall of British Midland Airways.
