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.

The Boeing 757-200 was handed over to British Airways in March 1986 in Renton / Washington with the MSN (manufacturer serial number) 23533 and line number 93 as a purely passenger aircraft. The British flag carrier registered it as G-BIKY, christening it “Leeds Castle”.
Along with other aircraft, in 2003 the 757 was repurposed into a purely cargo aircraft in Mobile Downtown (Alabama), to then be used exclusively for DHL. In the course of this, it was re-assigned to European Air Transport with the registration OO-DPN and finally to EAT Leipzig in 2010.
Under its final registration D-ALEK, it flew DHL consignments around the world until 2018, before finally being parked in Castellon / Spain on Christmas Eve 2018.
After marking 50 years of DHL, Aviationtag is now launching a new joint limited edition of the D-ALEK for commercial sale. Not just a piece of aviation history, but also a piece of DHL history – get yours while stocks last!
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.
