The Boeing 757-200 registered as OH-LBT (manufacturer’s serial number MSN28170) first took to the skies in May 1998 with Finnair. After eleven years of service, it put in a brief guest appearance with Italy’s Air Europe, which was forced to cease operations just a year later. So then it was back to its old home for the plane, where it flew for Finnair for another seven years.
In March 2014, its registration was changed to EI-LBT, Irish airspace becoming its new home. Up until its last flight, the Boeing 757-200 took to the skies for Aer Lingus under the name “St Brendan / Breandan”, flying from Ireland to New York and from Dubai to Washington to name just two of its routes.
In 2020, the Boeing 757-200 was removed from service and then recycled at Pinal Airpark in the US state of Arizona. After more than 20 years soaring over the clouds, we are now proud to be bringing part of its history home to you as an Aviationtag.

Boeing 757 : The Boeing 757 is a twin-engine airliner originally built for medium-haul flights, but which was then repurposed for long-haul flights over the years. Production of the 757 ended in 2004 after the 1,050th plane. Depending on the model, its length ranged from 47.32 m to 54.43 m with a wingspan of over 38 m. At optimum altitude it reached a maximum speed of 850 km/h and in the standard version had a maximum range of 7,870 km.
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!
