The Aviationtag A380 trilogy is finally complete!
The Airbus A380 is the largest and heaviest airliner in the world, hands down. Two models of the super jet (9V-SKA and 9V-SKB) are already part of the Aviationtag family and we are super proud to now complete the trio and have the legendary plane sporting registration 9V-SKE and Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 10 on board.
It was in June 2008 that the Airbus A380-300 was delivered to Singapore Airlines. With 471 seats, the plane travelled halfway round the globe during its ten years of service – to Sydney, Mumbai, London and Paris, to name just a few destinations. After 7 years taking to the skies, the MSN 10 was then reconfigured and its capacity reduced to just 441 passengers.
9V-SKE was already removed from service in the autumn of 2018 and returned to its lessor, the German Dr. Peters Group. The aircraft was parked at Tarbes Lourdes Airport (LDE) until it recently started being recycled.

Airbus A380: The Airbus A380 is a four-engine wide-bodied aircraft with two full-length passenger decks. At a capacity of up to 853 passengers, the low-wing aircraft is the largest ever mass-produced aircraft in history. It has a maximum range of 16,300 km and a cruising speed of some 940 km/h. The maximum take-off weight of this super jumbo is about 590 tons! In February 2019, Airbus announced that it would be discontinuing production in 2021.
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!
