With the arrival of the former Air China Boeing 777-200 we are proud to welcome the flag carrier of the People’s Republic of China into the Aviationtag fleet. The 中國國際航空公司 / 中国国际航空公司 is based in Beijing and a member of the Star Alliance.
Our Boeing 777 was delivered to Air China in May of the millennial year 2000 with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 29744 and line mumber 280 and was registered under B-2065.
After just 17 years of service, in 2017 it was retired and parked in the US, where it is still awaiting final recycling. We have already managed to preserve the Chinese logo of Air China for posterity though.
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 777 or Triple Seven is a twin-engine wide-body long-haul airliner manufactured by Boeing accommodating between 300 and 550 passengers, depending on the configuration. It is the largest twin-engine airliner in the world and the first to use fly-by-wire technology. The Boeing 777 has been in production since 1994 and its first customer was United Airlines.
Depending on the model, the 777 ranges from 63.7 m to 76.7 m in length, with a wingspan of up to 71.8 m. The latest versions are said to have a range of up to 16,090 km.
