After the war BOAC flew Lockheed, Douglas, Sunderland, and Liberators. During the early 1950's BOAC was the first airline to introduce the use of jets into their passenger service. The first in use was the Comet, but after four models crashed (the last two of which were BOACs), the Comet was grounded in April 1954. The ashtray is white with blue banners reading "FLY BOAC" with red flight paths and small blue airplane details.
