Your reliable Aviation Gift Source since 1989

Airplane Skin Tags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because Airplane Skin Tags are made from real fuselage, each Airplane Skin Tags bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical Airplane Skin Tags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of Airplane Skin Tags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your Airplane Skin Tags. The images on the website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular Airplane Skin Tags.

Product description

The Airbus A330-300 sporting registration B-HLB had called Hong Kong its home since its maiden flight in February 1995. The aircraft originally registered as VR-HLB with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 083 launched its career with Cathay Pacific as a 311-seat passenger plane. In July 1997, the 5-star airline re-registered the plane, leading to its final registration B-HLB.

After 16 years of service, Dragonair, partly owned by Cathay Pacific since 1990, took ownership of the Airbus A330-300. In 2006, for a price tag equivalent to USD 1.06 billion, Cathay Pacific acquired all the shares in Dragonair, renaming the airline Cathay Dragon in 2016. The plane continued to fly until August 2019, taking to the skies for the last time to San Bernardino International Airport on 27 September 2019.

At the end of 2020, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Cathay Pacific had to shut down Cathay Dragon completely.

So we are all the more thrilled to be saving part of Asian aviation history for posterity and bringing it home to you!

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!
