Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name.
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

To the extend that it comes with the explanation of the location overall, yes. Not 2 days later.

I will put everybody out of their misery and confirm that it was the BA First lounge at LHR T1. This lounge opened in c.2003/4 around the same time as the International Terraces lounge was refurbished and some longhaul services moved from T4 to T1. Sadly, the lounge only had a 5-year life before closing in 2008 when T5 opened.

Congratulations to hjd36 who correctly guessed LHR T1.

I’ve no idea, but this surely should be disqualified as there is no lampshade on the beast!

Okay, it’s the toilets at CPT.

You'll have to do a bit of sleuthing but on the shop fronts and walls in Lounge 2. You are highly likely to walk past them once you get down the BA concourse (D).

I am attaching an article on the topic from the artist: Cows!, and also a professional shot of the whole cow ?infested wall!

Thanks

Thank you! I understood where they are. I would not have noticed them on my own as I always passed that area at brisk pace, not looking up

To be honest it's a bit of a life changer stopping from time to time and looking up...

Not when you want to reach the gate quickly because you're anxious to be there on time

PS
Last year I took the wrong turn in ATL and ended up in an African sculptures exhibition area. I had time to spare so I enjoined to see it all
