Boeing 747 - G-VAST Rare Complete Set (Summer Aviationtag Event)

Mann Inc - Summer Aviationtag Event

A rare opportunity to purchase rare tags, and also tag sets. 

Any Aviationtag sold in the UK includes VAT. However each Aviationtag sold outside the UK is TAX free. 

It will be subject to TAX and duty at point of delivery. A handling charge can be expected. If you purchase this item you consent to paying these charges at the point of delivery. Mann Inc Ltd cannot provide advice with regards to the additional cost as it varies for country to country. This can be found on your own government website. The handling charge for DHL  or DPD can be found on the DHL website for your country. 

Any item returned to us or any order that has a delivery refusal will be refunded minus the additional fees charged plus the original postage cost. We strongly recommend any order made by a resident of China includes the official resident ID number to ensure its not refused by customs. 

Please 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.



A giant “ladybird”!

Like many other airlines, Virgin Atlantic also decided to phase out all Boeing 747-400s in the wake of the Covid19 crisis. Here you have the opportunity to secure an authentic piece of the former Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 with the registration G-VAST and the baptismal name "Ladybird".

In June 1997 the B747, MSN 28757, was delivered to Virgin Atlantic Airways and served 23 faithful years with the British carrier founded by Sir Richard Branson. In March 2020, at the first peak of the Corona crisis, it was taken out and parked first in London and later in Manchester. In July, the "Ladybird" was finally transferred to Wales, later used and finally our Ladybird Aviationtag Series upcycled.

The original aircraft paint of this edition is very sensitive, especially at the edges – even though we gave it extra care. That is not a reason that we can accept for claims or complaints. Please take good care of your tag and we strongly suggest to use the Aviationtag protection cover.


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.
