This Fokker50 - or F50 for short – was built in the Netherlands and was to be found mostly in the airspace over Scandinavia. As SE-LFP aka "Ingemar Viking" it soon became a pan-European globetrotter. At first it took to the skies for Scandinavian Airlines Commuter Eurolink and Skyways, before then transporting passengers for Gee Bee Air, Swe Fly and SAS Braathens as well as SAS Norge. Before completing its transformation into our Aviationtags in October 2017, the turboprop enjoyed its early retirement in sunny Greece at Hellas Aviation and Minoan Air.
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.
