AVIATIONTAG Boeing 747 - B-16411 - Green (EVA Air)
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.
Boeing 747 : The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. Its wingspan is 64.44 m and the vertical elongation at the wingtip can be up to 16 m. It is also well known for its “hump” silhouette which earned it the nickname Jumbo Jet. Compared to previous 747s, the most significant aerodynamic improvement in the 747-400 is the wing size, which is 1.8 m (6 ft) longer with a 6 ft. high winglet that is angled upwards and slightly outward.
19 years of service under its belt, countless miles and millions of passengers: It is incredibly proud to be welcoming EVA Air’s very last Boeing 747-400 into Aviationtag family. In exclusive cooperation with the Taiwanese airline, Aviationtag have crafted a limited-edition Aviationtag from the popular plane sporting registration B-16411 and Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 29111 that will make collectors’ hearts beat faster.
In April 1998, the Boeing 747-400 left the factory doors for the Taiwanese airline EVA Air. The last commercial flight BR-892 left Hong Kong headed for Taipei on 21 August 2017, taking 1:15 hours and close to fully booked with 370 passengers.
A few days after the final passenger flight, the plane made its way with a small crew to San Bernardino, California – the jumbo jet’s final resting place. It is thrilled to be keeping the memory of EVA Air’s last Boeing 747-400 alive in the form of unique Aviationtags!
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.
