British Airways Speedbird Heritage Centre's collection has existed since the formation of British Airways. It was formed to preserve the records and artefacts of British Airways predecessor companies BOAC, BEA, BSAA and the pre-war Imperial Airways and British Airways Ltd. The Collection is manned by volunteers whose dedication, together with the generosity of many staff and former colleagues from donations of artefacts, have built the Collection to what it is today. We look forward to welcoming you to the Collection. We particularly welcome information, guidance and advice on the Collection, particularly from first-hand experiences from those who have played some part in our history.
