Flying Start is BA’s global charity partnership with Comic Relief UK (or Sport Relief). The aim is to raise money to help children living in incredibly tough lives in the UK and also around the world.

A biannual tradition for British Airways is to paint red noses onto the nose of a couple of aircraft to support Comic Relief in which they do take part in helping raise money for the biannual event.

G-EUOF and G-EUOH are in the generic livery and are to have noses painted on them soon for the main event on the 13th March. The noses will be removed at some point after this date.

Heres a sneak peek of whats to come:

G-EUOF has been painted and will soon return to service

Noses appear on different fleet each year. The 767 one year, the A318 another. Heres the timeline:

Sport Relief was held in 2010 so a nose was not added to an aircraft

British Airways decided that the nose should also appear for Sport Relief events, so it made its debut in 2012.
