About BOAC

There was a time when flying by air was a rare and luxurious treat. British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) was the precursor to British Airways. It was founded in 1940 as a state owned airline and continued to operate overseas even during the Second World War. With its great history, you can browse the listings of Top-rated Sellers on eBay to find new and pre-owned memorabilia, including a BOAC badge or BOAC menu. There are many vintage items carrying the BOAC insignia, such as metal trays, water jugs, and holdalls, all from the 1960s. For older pieces, look for an advertising poster from the 1950s. Many sellers offer free delivery.
