The JA8322 was built in Everett / Washington in 1992 with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 25618 and line number 458 and delivered to the Star Alliance member ANA in October.
In 2012, the Boeing 767 was struck by lightning as it was making its landing approach on its flight from Tokyo to Toyama with 275 passengers on board, but was able to land safely despite its nose cone being damaged.
After 25 years of loyal service to ANA All Nippon Airways, the JA8322 was decommissioned in 2017 and parked in the USA. We were able to save parts of the 767 and are especially proud to be able to upcycle an important aircraft in Japanese aviation history into one of our Aviationtags.
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.
