Queen’s Bermuda reminder on tour of BA’s HQ
Bermuda featured as Queen Elizabeth toured the British Airways headquarters at Heathrow airport near London to make its 100th anniversary.
The Queen saw artefacts and photographs at BA’s Speedbird Centre museum related to her 1953 visit to the island on a Stratocruiser plane operated by BA’s predecessor BOAC.
The museum also features a photograph of World War Two British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as he prepared to make the first transatlantic flight of a world leader after a 24-hour stopover in Bermuda in 1942.
He made the secret visit to address the House of Assembly to thank them for allowing the US to build military bases in Bermuda the previous year.
The Queen visited BA’s Waterside complex at Heathrow on Thursday.
