Throughout 2020, we watched some iconic aircraft like the 747 and A380 withdrawn from commercial service by numerous airlines. The future for many such aircraft is a sad one, after years of sitting in the desert sun before being scrapped and recycled into soda cans. Not exactly a fitting retirement for engineering marvels that safely transported hundreds of thousands, if not millions of passengers over their lifetimes.
These aircraft tags are individual pieces of aviation history, each supplied with durable aircraft grade cable loop for use as key chains. Each comes with a tasteful graphic cardboard backing with a brief type history, and details of the individual aircraft background, and aircraft specifications. Each is a numbered limited edition crafted from genuine aircraft skin, and has not been refinished in any way apart from laser etching of the artwork on the tag. Scratches, dents, corrosion and other imperfections may be present of the Plane Chain. These imperfections are what make Plane Chains special, They are a testament to the aircraft's past life as a real airplane.
Aircrew and flight attendants also love having these as souvenirs of aircraft they have operated in their careers, a great gift idea, for a lasting memory of something special .
Each is approximately 3.5 cm x 9 cm / 1.4” x 3.5” inches in size. The attached cardboard is 10 cm x 15 cm / 4 “ x 6” inches
