AVIATIONTAG Airbus A380 - 9V-SKE - White (Singapore Airlines)
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.
Airbus A380: The Airbus A380 is a four-engine wide-bodied aircraft with two full-length passenger decks. At a capacity of up to 853 passengers, the low-wing aircraft is the largest ever mass-produced aircraft in history. It has a maximum range of 16,300 km and a cruising speed of some 940 km/h. The maximum take-off weight of this super jumbo is about 590 tons!
The Airbus A380 is the largest and heaviest airliner in the world, hands down. Two models of the super jet (9V-SKA and 9V-SKB) are already part of the Aviationtag family and they were super proud to complete the trio and have the legendary plane sporting registration 9V-SKE and Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 10 on board.
It was in June 2008 that the Airbus A380-300 was delivered to Singapore Airlines. With 471 seats, the plane travelled halfway round the globe during its ten years of service – to Sydney, Mumbai, London and Paris, to name just a few destinations. After 7 years taking to the skies, the MSN 10 was then reconfigured and its capacity reduced to just 441 passengers.
9V-SKE was already removed from service in the autumn of 2018 and returned to its lessor, the German Dr. Peters Group. The aircraft was parked at Tarbes Lourdes Airport (LDE) until it recently started being recycled.
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.
