Small blemishes bear witness to the plane's long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.

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)

Aircraft featured:

It was 17 November 1967 when our Vickers VC10 from the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) completed its maiden flight for the British Royal Air Force. Shortly afterwards it was registered as XV-106. In an official ceremony it was then christened the "Thomas Mottershead VC" after a legendary sergeant a short time later. In 1977, the aircraft had its first royal encounter when it appeared in the Finningley Royal Flypast in honour of Queen Elisabeth II and her Silver Jubilee.

On 27 July 1979, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew then flew with the XV-106 to Lusaka to attend a Commonwealth meeting.

In 1994, the VC10 was repurposed as a tanker and cargo plane until it was finally taken out of commission in 2012 and has now been reborn as your royal Aviationtag.

About AviationTag

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.
