Another “Queen of the Skies” joins the Aviationtag fleet: the former Korean Air Boeing 747-400 registered under HL7490!
In February 1994, it left Boeing’s factory doors with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 27177 and line number 1019 headed for Korean Air, where it was given the Korean registration HL7490. Up until 2015 it called Seoul (ICN) its home, flying millions of passengers and millions of miles the world over.
Following its retirement, in 2016 it was finally relocated to the US, where it was “rechristened” N319KA. This is where we were able to salvage some parts of the plane to turn them into our unique Aviationtags for you.
Boeing 747 series – crafted for those who change the world and think big!
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.
The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. Its wingspan is 64.44 m and the vertical elongation at the wingtip can be up to 16 m. It is also well known for its “hump” silhouette which earned it the nickname Jumbo Jet. Compared to previous 747s, the most significant aerodynamic improvement in the 747-400 is the wing size, which is 1.8 m (6 ft) longer with a 6 ft. high winglet that is angled upwards and slightly outward.
