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 the eighties and nineties, the MD80 gained cult status at American Airlines. Now Aviationtag is proud to present an exclusive series officially licensed by American Airlines crafted from one of the aircrafts!
The N922TW was completed on 26 July 1981 as an MD81 and initially took to the skies for Swissair before it was taken over by Trans World Airlines (TWA) in 1997 and converted into an MD82. In 2001 it was transferred to American Airlines – along with the rest of TWA.
In April 2003 it landed in Roswell, New Mexico, which was to be its last stop. Now its fuselage is being given a new purpose: as a limited-edition Aviationtag. The series is officially licensed by American Airlines and, thanks to almost 20 years of retirement basking in the desert sun of New Mexico, has a unique retro look, in some cases even sporting major scratches.
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.
