Boeing 767 – OE-LAX (Red/White)
We spent a long time looking for a former Austrian Airlines plane and now we’ve finally found it! And where do you find a plane from your next-door neighbour? In the US, of course. So now it has a few extra miles under its proverbial belt.
We are thrilled to now present the Aviationtag Edition of the former Austrian Airlines Boeing 767-300ER OE-LAX. The OE-LAX with the MSN 27095 was delivered to what was then Lauda Air in 1992, christened no other than “James Dean”.
After 15 years of taking to the skies for the airline founded by former Formula 1 pilot Niki Lauda, the Boeing 767 joined Austrian Airlines in 2007 as part of the takeover, where it was given the epithet “Salzburg Festival”.
The OE-LAX finally ended up at the cargo airline Kalitta Air in Michigan. It still registered the aircraft as N788CK, but actually used it solely to extract spare parts. We jumped at the chance and were able to get our hands on some very nice parts of the Boeing 767 for our latest Aviationtag Edition!
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 767: The Boeing 767-300ER is a version of the 767-300 with a considerably longer range and an additional fuselage tank, like the one already installed in the 767-200ER. As an extended range (ER) aircraft, the OE-LAX had a maximum range of 11,297 KM, whilst a conventional 767-300 could only reach a maximum of 9,075 km.
Development of the 767-300ER began in 1985 with the maiden flight taking place on 19 December 1986. The launch customer – as is so often the case with Boeing – was American Airlines, which ordered 15 aircraft in March 1987. The take-off weight could optionally be increased to 172,365 kg. From 1992, a take-off weight of 186,880 kg was allowed. The last of the 583 aircraft produced was delivered to Air Astana in Kazakhstan in June 2014, also marking the last delivery of a passenger 767.
At the request of the airline, both 300 versions (B763 and B763ER) can also be equipped with an additional middle exit, installed in front of the wing. This means that three doors of the same size are mounted on each side – just like on the OE-LAX.
