Special Graphic Designed By 11-Year-Old Student Celebrates The Queen's Diamond Jubilee
One of British Airways' fleet of 747s is now featuring a very special emblem to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The celebratory aircraft will be flying its message of congratulations around the world. Designed by 11-year-old Blue Peter winner, Katherine Dewar from Chester, the official logo has been emblazoned on the side of the British Airways aircraft alongside the words, "Congratulations, Celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee."
"Since winning the competition, it's been like a dream come true to see my design in so many different places around the UK but I never expected to see it on a huge jumbo plane," Dewar said. "I love going on holiday to Florida and hope the next time I do I'll be lucky enough to fly on this plane so I can look out the window at my design."
British Airways' Captain Mark Mannering-Smith said: "As the national flag carrier I can't think of anything more fitting than British Airways carrying a message of congratulations to Her Majesty around the world."
