Limited-edition DC 3 Series is crafted from the left wing of the historic C-47B-30-DK – better known as the "candy bomber". On its mission during the Berlin Airlift in 1948/49 the candy bomber ensured the survival of many Berlin citizens. Afterwards it travelled half the world - from France to Indonesia – before returning to Germany, where it made its very last flight together with the historic Ju52 on October 30, 2008 at five to midnight from the world's longest serving airport – Berlin Tempelhof – thus ending the era of the "mother of all airports".
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 collectorâ€™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.
