Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.
Each tag is made from the retired original aircraft fuselage skin of the featured aircraft, and is numbered. Size: 1.37 x 3.46 inch (35 x 88 mm)

The Boeing 757-200 was delivered to British Airways in Renton in 1986 with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 23492 and line number 89, originally as a passenger aircraft. BA christened it “Belvoir Castle” and registered it as G-BIKW.
In 2001, British Airways retired the Boeing from its fleet and in 2003, European Air Transport converted it into a purely cargo aircraft with the registration OO-DPK. As of then it flew as “operated for” DHL.
In 2010 it was re-assigned to ETA Leipzig and given its German registration: D-ALEH. Shortly before the end of 2018, the Boeing 757-200F was decommissioned and parked in Castellon, Spain. This year, it was finally upcycled by Aviationtag into a special anniversary edition celebrating 50 years of DHL.
Alongside commercial planes like the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A340, we have also given historical aircraft like the DC-3 “candy bomber” a second life as an Aviationtag. But this also allows us to preserve important and interesting parts of aviation history.
See the video below which shows how an AviationTag comes to life.
