Handcrafted original aircraft skin from a BOEING B737-800.
With the introduction of next-generation narrow-body aircrafts with better performances, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, a large number of old narrow-body aircrafts are facing retirements. However, with the rapid development of e-commerce and logistics industries, the demand for cargo aircraft in the market is also increasing. In the competition of narrow-body freighters today, the Boeing 737-800BCF is undoubtedly the most popular option. It has a payload of over 23 tons or a cargo volume of over 185 cubic meters. The structural reinforcement also brings an additional lifespan of approximately 15-20 years. As a result, more airlines are choosing to convert their Boeing 737-800s into freighters rather than retiring them directly.
The Boeing 737-800 MSN34267 made its first flight on Jun 22, 2007, with the line number 2311. On Jul 9 of the same year, it was delivered to GOL with the registration number PR-GTN. On Feb 24, 2021, this 14-year-old Boeing 737 was withdrawn from use and then flew to TNA where it received the cargo conversion three months later. The airliner joined the newly established Kargo Xpress in Malaysia as 9M-KXB after the conversion, providing cargo services for the fight against COVID-19 as well as the logistic industry.
The conversion requires the installation of a 3.58-meter wide and 2.08-meter high door on the Portside of the forward fuselage. A section of fuselage skin, from the top to the belly, with a length of rough 8 meters, were removed during the conversion. This tag in your hand is made from the skin removed from PR-GTN. The airliner has been flying millions of passengers to their destinations in its passenger career, and now it will be serving its cargo career for some another 20 years. The dedicated workhorse has truly demonstrated its maximum value. And this tag will carry forward this spirit, welcoming a brand new future together with you!

Important to read before purchasing
Every tag has its unique serial number; each of them is unique and special. Tags are distributed randomly, and you will get a different serial number rather than the tag listed.
Purchasing multicolour tags will come with a unique pattern as every tag has a particular pattern, but the colour will be the same as what you bought. Purchasing multicoloured tags will be automatically agreed with the rule.
Aircraft skins are flown with the aircraft for years and parked in Boneyards before us handcrafting it to tag. Minor scratches and paint drop are normal, hexagons and multicolour rectangles tags are not recommended to use as a keychain, and all rectangles tags will come with a ring for daily use.
The whole package will include a cardboard alongside with the tag, relying on the hole and rings to connect them.
Please feel free to contact us for more details and your questions :)
Have a new day and enjoy your Airlinertags!
