The BCal Media Gallery
Below are a selection of videos and audio from around the internet that feature British Caledonian Airways and their forebears.

Some are the super adverts, some are peoples personal video tributes, and some are from movies featuring BCAL.

They are all well worth a watch, and I would be pleased to show anymore that are available.

Please enjoy them, and of course the sound tracks too and thank you to all the contributers for their super work

BCAL Line Engineering Gatwick. "We allowed ourselves 12 hours of grieving to mourn the loss of the BCAL identity as a mainline operation,after which we all had to get down to joining the two airlines together and making it work," This movie captures some of the light hearted banter and snippets of conversation during a day at work. Many thanks to Ian Haines for this super video capturing many in Engineering and around the ramp. The video also starts with a shot of my Father, Ron Thaxter, with some footage of Dad later on too
These 3 all kindly sent in by Ian Haines
