After all the other Airbus models, we are proud to finally welcome an Airbus A330-200 into our Aviationtag fleet: The A330 with the registration UR-WRQ.
A true globetrotter which immediately caught our eye as we toured the aircraft graveyards of the world with its unique paint job! Delivered in 1999 to what at the time was the Belgian flag carrier Sabena with the manufacturer serial number (MSN) 296/immatriculation OO-SFR, it then flew for VG Airlines and Delsey Airlines. From 2003 to 2013, the A330 took to the skies for Malaysia Airlines before Windrose Airlines in Ukraine then registered it as UR-WRQ and gave it its unique livery design.
In 2017, after 18 years of service, it was parked in Great Britain where we would finally discover it. When the A330 was recycled in 2018, we were able to secure some parts of the aircraft skin and can now proudly present this colourful, limited-edition Aviationtag.
Please 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.
Weight: 0.021 kg, Dimensions: 35 x 88 mm, Material: Recycled aircraft skin, Aircraft Type: Airbus A330-200, Registration: UR-WRQ
The Aviationtags are 100% authentic original airplane skin. The origin of the material can be traced back seamlessly all the way to when the plane was first sold and the customers are supplied with important and interesting information on aircraft history in the form of our (b)logbook.
The tags are Made in Germany and for the most part are painstakingly crafted by hand right at the small manufacture in Cologne – where they love to turn something old and wonderful into something new and wonderful.
Each tag is one of a kind with a unique serial number. This allows Aviationtag to step in with its “Lost & Found” service to help reunite you with your Aviationtag if you ever lose it.
