AVIATIONTAG MBB Bundeswehr Helicopter Bo 105 - 86+14 - Grey / Silver
Aviationtag have been taking original airplane parts off from what were once real-life airliners and turning them into premium, one-of-a-kind designer and collector’s items since as far back as 2006. In 2015, Aviationtag had the idea of making the world a little bit better by upcycling scrapped airplanes into special 'Aviationtags'. Alongside commercial planes like the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A340, they have also given historical aircraft like the DC-3 “candy bomber” a second life as an Aviationtag.
The Aviationtags themselves are 100% authentic original airplane skin. The origin of the material can be traced back seamlessly all the way to when the plane was first sold for scrap.
This new Aviationtag Edition marks new territory for us in two respects. First, because this is our first helicopter and second, because it is our first edition crafted from a German Bundeswehr aircraft – the Bo 105 with the former ID 86+14.
The Bölkow Bo 105 is a helicopter produced by the German manufacturer Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB). The Bundeswehr used it as an anti-armour helicopter, inter alia in Bückeburg, Roth and most recently in Greece as a training helicopter.
Our helicopter’s maiden flight was in 1981, with the Bo 105 86+14 retiring in 2017. After the odd detour, the cabin of the helicopter finally found its way to us and we are very proud to now be announcing this very special Aviationtag Edition.
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in haptics, thickness of material and colour. Small irregularities tell of a plane’s long history and convey the feeling of its glory days above the clouds.
Dimensions: 35 x 88mm.
