The Boeing 747-400 with the registration G-CIVE and manufacturer serial number MSN 27350 was built in the early 1990s and then delivered to the British flag carrier British Airways. Christened “Victor Echo”, the plane took to the skies for the first time in December 1994.
The Boeing 747-400 was a real frequent flyer – over its 25 years of service, “Victor Echo” flew 111,086 hours on 13,356 flights, racking up over 55 million miles.
On 25 March 2020, the Boeing 747-400 was retired and parked at London Heathrow until 16 September 2020, when it was transferred to St Athan, where it awaited its new mission as an Aviationtag with us.
Note: 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. Small scratches, flaky paint and imperfections are totally normal and give our Aviationtags their unique charm – the charm of a vintage product crafted from upcycled materials. These quirks are not the result of the production process, they simply reflect the state of the aircraft material we use when it was extracted. The original aircraft paint of this edition is rather sensitive, so please take good care of your tag!
Material: mainly metal
