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.
Each tag is made from the retired original aircraft fuselage skin of the featured aircraft, and is numbered. Size: 1.37 x 3.46 inch (35 x 88 mm)
Lost & Found Service
AviationTag also offers a bonus lost and found service. Thanks to the unique combination of serial number, plane type and honest finder, your tag can be traced back to AviationTag who will do their best to get your things back to you as quickly as possible.

A star is born: The Star of Switzerland.
AviatonTag is proud to welcome another aircraft steeped in history into our ever-growing Aviationtag fleet – the L-1049, manufactured by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. Built in 1955 based on plans by the legendary Howard Hughes, the Super Constellation, also affectionately dubbed Super Connie, initially flew for the US Air Force before then being converted into a fire-fighting plane in the 70s. After more eventful years that followed, the L-1049 was on the verge of disrepair until in 1991 an historical association saved it and made it airworthy again. In 2004, it was rechristened the “Star of Switzerland”, given the logo of its then sponsor Breitling and transported to Switzerland. Since 2007 it has been registered under HB-RSC as a historical plane and is a popular photo op at many flying shows.
This is the first Aviationtag from an aircraft still in operation. The HB-RSC is one of the very few L-1049 Super Constellations worldwide that are still in service.
Alongside commercial planes like the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A340, we have also given historical aircraft like the DC-3 “candy bomber” a second life as an Aviationtag. But this also allows us to preserve important and interesting parts of aviation history.
See the video below which shows how an AviationTag comes to life.
