British European Airways (BEA) was a British airline operating short to medium-haul routes. Established by BOAC on January 1, 1946, it conducted domestic and international services. The airline introduced the “Red Square” livery in the late 1950s and the “Speedjack” livery in late 1960s. In April 1969, formed BEA Airtours, a low-cost airline with services commencing in March 1970. BEA merged with BOAC to form British Airways (BA) on April 1, 1974. British Airways revived the BEA name from 1991 to 2008.
The British Aircraft Corporation BAC One-Eleven is a British narrow-bodied short-range jet airliner, the second such airliner to enter service, after the Sud Aviation Caravelle. The first flight took place on August 20, 1963, and began service in April 1965 with British United Airways (BUA). Also referred to as the BAC-111 or BAC 1-11 the design, initiated by Hunting Aircraft, formerly Percival Aircraft Ltd and developed by the British Aircraft Corporation after the government forced the merger of several British aircraft manufacturers in 1960. It was also manufactured under licence in Romania as the Rombac One-Eleven. The crash of the prototype on October 22, 1963, during stall testing, led to the discovery of what became known as a deep stall.
One of the most successful of British airliners with more than half of launch sales coming from the US. It remained in worldwide service until the 1990s when it underwent an acceleration in retirement, in part due to aircraft noise restrictions introduction into Europe. The last two aircraft in service were used by Northrop Grumman as an airborne test bed, with one retired in 2018 and the other to follow in 2019 or 2022.
Manufacture in several variants with the first production model was the -200 with seating for up to 80 passengers, followed by the -300 with uprated engines and higher fuel capacity. The -400 was a -300 with American instrumentation.
The -500 also known as Super One-Eleven, introduced in 1967 had the fuselage extended by 5.64 m (18 ft 6 in), increasing passenger seating to 119. Along with an increased wingspan of 1.5 m (5 ft) and more powerful engines. The – 510ED manufactured for BEA/British Airways had instrumentation and avionics of or similar to the Hawker Siddeley HS.121 Trident.
The -475 launched in 1970 was to compete with the F28. It combined the -400 fuselage with the engines and wings of the -500.
