The latest Tailfins keyring was once flying all over the world as part of the fuselage for the airline, British Airways. Tailfins managed to get a small piece after being scrapped to turn into products.
In 1989 British Airways took ownership of the 747-400, MSN 24047. It was painted in the classic Landor colours and given the reg G-BNLE.
The 747 took pride of place in the BA fleet among the other Queen of the skies. During this era, BA named their planes after cities in the UK and G-BNLE was no different. The name “City of Newcastle” was placed near door 1.
The Queen of the skies flew around the world and in 2000 it was time for a new livery. The Chatham Dockyard livery was added it wasn’t long before the queen graced the skies once more.
These unique and individual pieces are hand finished which come presented with a limited edition Certificate of Authenticity and for the first time a backing card. The Tailfins may have blemishes from years in the sky making each of them one of a kind!
