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.

Limited-edition Boeing 747-B-HUI series is crafted from the skin of a legendary Jumbo Jet, which rose to global stardom at Cathay Pacific for its spectacular arrivals at Kai Tak airport. After 22 years of service for Cathay Pacific, the four-engine aircraft completed its last official passenger flight on September 30th, 2016 to Taipei. Together with the B-HKT and B-HUJ, our Queen of the Skies brought the passenger service of the 747 era to a close for Cathay Pacific. It and its predecessors transported more than 160 million passengers around the entire world.
AviationTag has been taking original airplane parts off and 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, we had the idea of making the world a little bit better by upcycling scrapped airplanes into our special Aviationtags.
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.
