Out of those 80 years I have been plying the London / Gulf route for the past 51 years. My first flight was on 14th September 1961 London To Bahrain via Rome, Beirut and Kuwait on a Bristol Britannia taking just over 18 hours! I have since flown in all aircraft types that BOAC/BA have used on the route to/from Bahrain including the Concorde (Pre-commercial Heat trials 1974 and commercial services) I do hope that Gulf Aviation (the Original Gulf airline!) was mentioned in the anniversary as it was a BOAC Associated Company at the time and directed joining or onward passengers to /from the Trucial States and Oman. Without Gulf Aviation it is unlikely that development of the region could have progressed at the speed that it did as it was the catalyst for change with the advent of oil in these states.
