Boeing 747 – F-GTUI - Dark Blue
Allez les (4) bleus!
Our latest edition is taking off just in time for the start of the summer holidays in France – the former Corsair Boeing 747 F-GTUI is now joining the ranks of the Aviationtag fleet.
The F-GTUI shipped to the American carrier United Airlines in August 1992 sporting MSN 26875, initially registered as N186UA. In 2005, the French holiday carrier Corsair acquired the Boeing 747-422, registering it in France, only to lease it to Garuda Indonesia shortly after. After six months in Indonesia, the F-GTUI returned to France before switching to Garuda again in 2009.
In 2010, it then returned to Corsair International once and for all, deployed mainly for long-haul holiday flights, including to the Caribbean and Mauritius.
In 2020, the F-GTUI was retired, finding its final resting place in Great Britain. This is where we came across the Boeing 747, allowing us to proudly present this fantastic plane to you as the latest Aviationtag Edition.

If you want to use it as a key-chain or bag-tag we strongly suggest to use the Aviationtag protection cover.
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds. Small scratches, flaky paint and imperfections are totally normal and give our Aviationtags their unique charm – the charm of a vintage product crafted from upcycled materials. These quirks are not the result of the production process, they simply reflect the state of the aircraft material we use when it was extracted.
Boeing 747 : The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. Its wingspan is 64.44 m and the vertical elongation at the wingtip can be up to 16 m. It is also well known for its “hump” silhouette which earned it the nickname Jumbo Jet. Compared to previous 747s, the most significant aerodynamic improvement in the 747-400 is the wing size, which is 1.8 m (6 ft) longer with a 6 ft. high winglet that is angled upwards and slightly outward.
