Behind the Scenes…
A little while ago, we released our “Aviationtag – The Making Of” video, which you can of course find in our YouTube channel. Today we would like to share some exclusive pictures from behind the scenes with you, so you can see how the video was done. Enjoy!
On Day 1 of the shooting, we went to Enschede in the Netherlands where the former KLM Boeing 747 PH-BFR was being dismantled.
After some establishing and mood shots, we got started and started cutting the Boeing 747 logo out of the PH-BFR. Not an easy piece of work – the closer you got to the exit door, the stronger the material got. What you see in this kind of yellow color is titanium mostly…
Then we went back to our premises in Cologne / Germany and started cutting the piece down and taking the skin of the ribs. After that we cut the aircraft skin into long slices and punched the typical Aviationtag form tag out it.
Now that the aircraft skin really looks like an Aviationtag already, they enter the final production stage. We clean them and sand the edges before we laser engrave both front and back side of the tags. After the laser engraving, we clean them again and add the chain to it and its unique cardboard. Done!
Not as easy and fast as you thought, right?
We hope and believe you found this interesting. Stay tuned for more posts and of course more tags coming your way!
And hey – do you have an Aviationtag from the former KLM Boeing 747 PH-BFR already?
