Anyone else collects fuselage skin tags?

These two companies cut out fuselage and convert them in to keychain tags. I found out about them last year and have been hooked into it, took me a year though before I actually bought. My first orders are the B-HUI from Cathay and 9V-SKA A380, both from Aviationtag. Planetags, the American company also make interesting products, I plan on purchasing VP-BDJ, Trumps former 727 private jet. They also have a cold war missile chopped up into tags!

If I bought more than 1 maybe, but you can see if there are any cancelations and orders reopen

I found one and bought it! Very expensive, but worth it considering they are completely sold out.

I have 2 of these things...

N8990E DC9-30 Eastern and PH-BFR 747-406M KLM

N8990E tags my camera bag and BFR is my main key chain.

I would buy any for aircraft I've flown, at least based on the flights I have registration numbers for. I have bought a few as gifts....a guy who did a reading at my wedding flew the Hercules in Vietnam and I got one from a C-130 from Planetags as a gift for him, plus a Victor one for my father for Fathers Day.

Glad to hear about Aviationtag, didn't know about them....am on the look out for one from an ex-TWA plane for my father-in-law as he worked for them. No luck yet in the few months I've been looking.

Where on earth did they get part of an SR-71 to use? I didn't think any had been scrapped but instead sent to museums?

I have an Allegiant MD-80 tag from PlaneTags. It's nice, but I do sometimes worry that I'll drop it and chip the paint or something. It's an expensive hobby, for sure.

I bought a tag of N646DL, I’ve not flown Delta but it’s a 757 which is good enough for me.

Aviationtag do one from N922TW, originally a Swissair MD82, sold to TWA in 1997, then ended up with AA. The tag is in AA colours (silver), but it is a former TWA plane if this is of any interest

I've become a bit addicted to these...I've been looking at them for a while but have now missed a few as they're now out of stock. The first one I got, was from one of my employers ex-freighters, so I decided I'd have a piece of it....the rest they say is history!

My first one was....

DHL 757 D-ALEH

then followed by....

Cathay Pacific 747 B-HUJ
Qantas 747 VH-OJN (white)
KLM 747 PH-BFR
Lufthansa A340 D-AIHO
Swiss A340 HB-JMK
Cathay Pacific 747 B-HUI
Lufthansa A320 D-AIPA
Qantas 747 VH-OJN again (red this time)
Korean Air 747 HL7495
China Airlines A340 B-18801
..good grief didn't realise I had this many!
Iberia A340 EC-GUP
Qatar Airways A340 A7-AGB
Air France A319 F-GPMB
Lufthansa A340 D-AIHR

Two of the Lufthansa ones I brought from them, using my frequent flyer miles, rather than loose them, and travelling is difficult at the moment, I got one of them free, the second one I only had to pay for the shipping so was quite pleased. They had planes for D-AIPC later in the year apparently, as I flew on her last year LHR-MUC, I'm particularly keen to try and get a piece of her too.

I think I want to stay with the larger airlines and planes ideally and avoid some of the smaller props or military stuff, otherwise where does it end.

Happy collecting!

Today I learned that Plane Reclaimers, based in the UK, have some BA 747 (G-CIVM) and 777 (G-ZZZC) "skin squares". They aren't luggage tags or anything but a metal square but for aircraft I've flown it's something I'll probably acquire.

Thank you for pointing that out! I had seen this one and considered it but he was a victim of AA's acquirement of TWA and so doesn't hold AA with any sort of regard. The Aviationtag packaging was all very heavy on the AA branding

As it happens in the last week Planetags has teased some photos of a TWA 747-100 on their Instagram account so am hoping that is one I'm looking for! I had messaged them a few weeks ago asking if they had any ex-TWA aircraft in the works and the response was no...but I can't see why they would put a photo up if they weren't going to sell it.

Planetags Has a presale going for tags off a TWA 741. Fair warning though...they aren't cheap!

It's a shame in a way it's an Air France original 741 rather than a genuine TWA machine...if any even still exist.

I think Aviationtag have a new one announced tomorrow. Curious to see what it'll be
