HISTORY: BRITISH CALEDONIAN was a private, British independent airline, operating out of Gatwick Airport in South-east England during the 1970s and 1980s. It was formed by the UK's second-largest, independent charter airline Caledonian Airways taking over British United Airways (BUA). In December 1987, British Airways (BA) gained control of the airline. The Caledonian name and livery was then used to rebrand BA's Gatwick-based subsidiary British Airtours as Caledonian Airways.
