A giant “ladybird”!

Like many other airlines, Virgin Atlantic also decided to phase out all Boeing 747-400s in the wake of the Covid19 crisis. Here you have the opportunity to secure an authentic piece of the former Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 with the registration G-VAST and the baptismal name "Ladybird".

In June 1997 the B747, MSN 28757, was delivered to Virgin Atlantic Airways and served 23 faithful years with the British carrier founded by Sir Richard Branson. In March 2020, at the first peak of the Corona crisis, it was taken out and parked first in London and later in Manchester. In July, the "Ladybird" was finally transferred to Wales, later used and finally our Ladybird Aviationtag Series upcycled.

We send ours Aviationtags all over the world. You have the choice between Economy Class
Shipping as Warenpost with Deutsche Post or 1st Class shipping with DHL Express.

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!

If you want to use it as a key-chain or bag-tag we strongly suggest to use the Aviationtag protection cover.

Boeing 747 : The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. Its wingspan is 64.44 m and the vertical elongation at the wingtip can be up to 16 m. It is also well known for its “hump” silhouette which earned it the nickname Jumbo Jet. Compared to previous 747s, the most significant aerodynamic improvement in the 747-400 is the wing size, which is 1.8 m (6 ft) longer with a 6 ft. high winglet that is angled upwards and slightly outward.
