Aviationtag - Boeing 747 - PH-BFG (KLM blue)
The Flying Dutchman is back!
The Boeing 747-400 left the factory doors for Dutch airline KLM in April 1990 sporting registration PH-BFG and manufacturer serial number (MSN) 24517. Christened “City of Guayaquil”, the plane served Hong Kong, Tokyo and Toronto, to name just a few destinations, for almost 30 years.
In 2019, the plane was retired, changing hands to Air Atlanta Icelandic for recycling. They re-registered it as TF-AMG, parking it at Cotswold Airport, where it was finally dismantled in March 2021.
We now proudly present our third KLM Aviationtag edition.

If you want to use it as a key-chain or bag-tag we strongly suggest to use the Aviationtag protection cover.
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!
Boeing 747 : 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.
