AVIATIONTAG Boeing 737 - 9Y-KIN - White (Caribbean 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.
Let us whisk you away to the Caribbean with the Boeing 737-800 from Caribbean Airlines sporting registration 9Y-KIN that is now part of the Aviationtag fleet.
In November 2000, the 737 sporting Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 28234 was transferred to BWIA West Indies Airways, flying for the Trinidad and Tobago carrier until 2006. In 2006, BWIA ceased operations, with Trinidad & Tobago-based Caribbean Airlines taking over all flights to Caribbean and international destinations – and the 9Y-KIN too – in January 2007.
Back to our MSN 28234: Up until January 2022, the Boeing 737 still flew for Caribbean Airlines in a two-class configuration before being retired and then scrapped in the summer. The flight to England for scrapping was probably the first and last to Europe for the 9Y-KIN. Luckily, we were able to lock in a few pieces of this fantastic plane to upcycle them into our current 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.
