Where this tag was cut from?
This Airbus A380 original plane tag was cut from the wingtip of Air France Airbus A380 F-HPJG. During scheduled heavy maintenance, this section of the wing was removed from the aircraft for a replacement. We were able to preserve this section of the wing and manufacture a limited number of original aircraft skin tag that carries aviation history.

* Important – Please Read Carefully Before Making Purchase
Our aviation luggage tags are made from skins of plane fuselage, not stamped metal. Each luggage tag is unique - color, thickness, wear and tear may differ from one piece to another piece. We did our best to craft and clean each tag by hand carefully, however, some scratches on the surface of the tag are inevitable due to age of those airplanes. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. Rather, they are the history and story of the airplane and this Aviator’s Story will continue as a luggage tag. Keep away from children's reach. Be cautious that the edge of this product may be sharp and may cause wound on skin. Keep out of mouth.
