Airskinz is pleased to present the launch of our former virgin Atlantic B747-400 G-VBIG (TINKER BELLE).
TINKER BELLE was delivered new to Virgin Atlantic in June 1996 and remained in service with the airline until retirement after 23 years of service.
Over the 23 years G-VBIG flew just over 13000 flight and carried more than 4 million passengers across the world.
On the 09th November 2019 G-VBIG flew her final flight from LGW to DXG in South Wales, Airskinz was lucky enough to watch TINKER BELLE land for the very last time.
In may 2020 we took another journey to South Wales but this time it was to collect her skin, and then the long process started to create these stunning tags in the sparkly white and famous stunning metallic red. The paint from this aircraft varied across the whole fuselage, levels of 'sparklyness' will differ across tags.

Long delivery wait no any communication however lovely product once arrived
I used to fly this aircraft, so nice to have a part of the good old days. It’s sorely missed
So pleased with my purchase. Will bring back great memories of flying on her
As an ex employee in glad to have managed to get a tag of G-VBIG. I particularly like the back story engraved on the tag. I am however slightly disappointed at the size of the item compared to other skin tag companies.
