AVIATIONTAG Boeing 737 - N7705A - Blue (Southwest 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.
Boeing 737 : The Boeing 737 is a twinjet narrow-body airliner that went into serial production in 1967. Boeing released a modernised version of the model – the Boeing 737 NG (Next Generation) – in 1993. To increase operating efficiency, the Next Generation 737 aircrafts were fitted with improved engines, modified avionics systems and newly developed wing panels. The new NG planes come in four different sizes ranging from 126 to 220 seats. Their flight range is approximately 5,500 km.
In October 2004, the US airline AirTran Airways added a Boeing 737-700 sporting the manufacturer’s serial number (MSN) 32744 and line number 1584 to its fleet. Equipped with 12 business class seats and 125 in economy class, the plane was registered as N169AT for ten years, flying domestic routes in the USA.
In 2014, the Boeing 737-700 switched from Atlanta to Dallas, where it found a new home at Southwest Airlines, now flying under registration N7705A. As a typical low-cost carrier, Southwest changed the configuration to a single-class cabin with 143 economy class seats.
On January 16, 2020, the aircraft took to the skies for the last time, landing with a five-minute delay at Pinal Airpark, where it was later dismantled into its individual parts and prepared for its new mission as an Aviationtag.
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.
