AVIATIONTAG Boeing 747 - G-VAST - White (Virgin Atlantic)
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.
In common with many other airlines, Virgin Atlantic decided to retire all its Boeing 747-400s in the wake of the Covid19 crisis. Here you now have the chance to snap up an authentic piece of the former Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 christened “Ladybird” with the registration G-VAST.
The B747 with MSN 28757 was delivered to Virgin Atlantic Airways in June 1997 and flew for the British carrier founded by Sir Richard Branson for 23 faithful years. In March 2020, at the first peak of the Corona crisis, it was removed from service and first parked in London and later Manchester. In July, the “Ladybird” was finally moved to Wales, recycled and ultimately upcycled into our Ladybird Aviationtag series.
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.
