Aviationtag Lufthansa!

After the tremendous success of the initial Lufthansa Boeing 747 Edition a few years ago (D-ABVC), a Jumbo Jet from Lufthansa has consistently been among your most significant desires – and it’s finally coming true!

The Boeing 747-400 with the registration D-ABTE and Manufacturer’s Serial Number (MSN) 24966 was delivered to Lufthansa in April 1991 and named “Sachsen-Anhalt.” After 21 successful years, D-ABTE was retired on August 6, 2012, and initially parked until May 29, 2013, at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport in Michigan. Eventually, the U.S. cargo airline Kalitta Air took over the aircraft. Although the Boeing 747-400, now registered as N769CK, was no longer flying, it still belonged to the airline until September 2021 and was utilized for spare parts.

Now, Aviationtag is thrilled to present the latest collaboration with Lufthansa and bring a piece of it to your home!

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!

History of the Boeing 747

The “Queen of the skies”, the iconic Boeing 747, was designed by Joe Sutter and his team in just 29 months. The wide body jetliner made its first flight on February 9, 1969, and it was put into service on January 22, 1970, with Pan Am.

The massive long haul aircraft, could have a wingspan of up to 68.4 m and a maximum range of 7,730 nm (14,316 km), depending on the variant. The so called “Jumbo jet” reached cruising speeds of mach 0.855 (933 km/h).

Sadly, the Coronavirus hit the Airline industry hard, and many retired their 747’s early in search for more efficient newer models. Boeing announced in 2020 it will end production. The last models are planned to roll of the production line in 2022. However, the 747 will keep flying for many more years, mostly as a freighter.
