Hey & hey da!
Bring home a real viking with the Aviationtag SAS Gudrod Viking. This remarkable aircraft, with Manufacturer’s Serial Number (MSN) 424, was registered as SE-REB and delivered to SAS Scandinavian Airlines in September 2001. After two months of flying, the airline re-registered the plane to LN-RKG and christened it as Gudrod Viking. It then flew to several destinations, including San Francisco, Tokyo, and Los Angeles.
During the period of April to October 2019, a unique sticker featuring “Mao Sun” and “Xing Er,” two pandas from Copenhagen Zoo, adorned the plane, greeting passengers with the message “Welcome to Copenhagen.”
After serving for 19 years, Gudrod Viking, along with the entire SAS Airbus A340 fleet, was retired in March 2020. The plane has since been awaiting recycling in Castellón, Spain, before heading north to Aviationtag.

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.

The aircraft, has a length of 59.39 m to 75.36 m depending on the type and a wingspan of 60.3 m to 63.45 m. The A340 is a very long aircraft, the 600 version is even 4 m longer than a 747-400.
