A-B-E-D. Not quite the right order, but – following the 9V-SKA, the 9V-SKB and the 9V-SKE – it gives us great pride nonetheless to now also unveil the 9V-SKD! The next former Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 to now be joining our Aviationtag fleet.
26.04.2008 was the day the Airbus A380-841 with manufacturer serial number (MSN) 8 was delivered to Singapore Airlines, where it was given the registration 9V-SKD. The A380 often flew on routes to Sydney, Hong Kong and Tokyo – but could also be spotted in Frankfurt and London.
After less than 10 years, though, in December 2017, the MSN 8 already took its last scheduled flight and was retired by Singapore Airlines – at a list price of up to 450 million US dollars no less. In 2018, it was still parked in France, where its lessor gave it the temporary registration 9H-DPD. In 2022, the A380 was then scrapped and we were able to get our hands on some parts, upcycling them into our latest Aviationtag Edition.
