The history of the Aviationtag Aer Lingus Boeing 757-200 EI-LBT

This Boeing 757-200 with MSN 28170, line number 801, first flew in 1998 for Finnair carrying the registration OH-LBT. In July 2007, it was transferred for a short period to Italy’s Air Europe, in December it returned to Finnair.

In March 2014, its registration changed to EI-LBT, operating for the Irish Aer Lingus. Flying all over the world carrying the name “St. Brendan / Breandan”, it visited many popular destinations like New York, Toronto, Washington, and Dubai.

The Boeing 757-200 was retired in 2020 and scraped at the Pinal Airpark in the US state of Arizona. Aviationtag made sure its history would live on and recycled its skin into the Aviationtag Aer Lingus Boeing 757-200 EI-LBT. If you are a big fan of aviation and the Shamrock, make sure to get this piece of history now!

Please be advised: Owning an Aviationtag, is owning a piece of history. During the airplane’s long life, the skin has developed some unique properties which make each tag different. Depending on the aircraft and what part it’s manufactured from, tags may show differences in material, color, thickness, and finish. For example, small scratches and flaking paint are perfectly normal, and these imperfections reflect on the long history of the aircraft. They give the tag its unique look and make it an excellent aviation collectible!

When using the Aviationtag as a keychain or luggage tag, we strongly advise using the original Aviationtag cover to preserve the finish.

History of the Boeing 757

In 1982, the Boeing 757 entered service as a transatlantic and transcontinental narrow-body, twin engine jetliner. It was the successor of the trijet powered 727.

The aircraft with its length of 47.32 m to 54.47 m depending on the type and a wingspan of 38.05 m, can carry up to 289 passengers. It is capable of reaching a cruise speed of mach 0.80 (850 km/h) at optimal altitude, a service ceiling of 42,000 ft (ca. 13 km) and a range of 3915 nm   (7250 km)

After 23 years, in 2005, Boeing delivered its last 757 to Shanghai Airlines. However, many are still in active service today.
