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.
We are thrilled to be bringing a real Viking home to you today: Gudrod Viking.
The Airbus A340-300 with Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 424 was registered as SE-REB and delivered to SAS Scandinavian Airlines in September 2001. After just two months of service, the airline re-registered the plane as LN-RKG, christening it Gudrod Viking and sending it to San Francisco, Tokyo and Los Angeles, to name just a few of its destinations.
From April to October 2019, another very special sticker adorned the plane with "Mao Sun" and "Xing Er", two pandas from Copenhagen Zoo, greeting passengers with the words "Welcome to Copenhagen".
Gudrod Viking – like the entire SAS Airbus A340 fleet – was retired in March 2020 after 19 years of service. Since then, the plane has been in Castellón, Spain awaiting recycling. Now the Viking has sailed north again to join the Aviationtag fleet.
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!
