Aviationtag Lufthansa Boeing 747 – D-ABTE white


Ever since the resounding success of the first Lufthansa Boeing 747 Edition a few years ago (D-ABVC), you have told us time and again that a Lufthansa jumbo is one of your biggest wishes – a wish that is now finally coming true!

The Boeing 747-400 sporting registration D-ABTE and manufacturer serial number (MSN) 24966 left the factory doors for Lufthansa in April 1991 and was christened “Sachsen-Anhalt”. After 21 successful years, D-ABTE was retired on 6 August 2012, initially being parked in Michigan at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport until 29 May 2013. There, the US cargo airline Kalitta Air finally took ownership of the plane. With its new registration N769CK, the Boeing 747-400 no longer took to the air, but continued to belong to the airline until September 2021, which used it for spare parts.

We are now proud to present our latest cooperation with Lufthansa and to bring a piece of it home to you!

We are thrilled to be welcoming the Italian star of Business Aviation to our Aviationtag family!

On 23 September 2019, the A330 made its last flight from Orlando to Manchester. This marked not only the last flight for our plane, but the last flight for Thomas Cook as a whole, which had to file for insolvency. The end of an era that had lasted 178 years.

So we are all the more thrilled to have been able to preserve part of the Thomas Cook story and bring it home to you as an Aviationtag!


After the immense popularity of the initial Lufthansa Boeing 747 Edition a few years back (D-ABVC), we heard from countless individuals that owning a Lufthansa jumbo was a dream come true – and now that wish has finally been granted!

Previously known as “Sachsen-Anhalt”, the Boeing 747-400 with the registration code D-ABTE and manufacturer serial number (MSN) 24966 was received by Lufthansa in April 1991, where it delivered 21 successful years before retiring on August 6th, 2012. It was initially parked in Michigan at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport until it was taken over by US cargo airline Kalitta Air on May 29th, 2013, with a new registration code of N769CK. Although it no longer took off into the sky, the Boeing 747-400 still belonged to the airline until September 2021, where it served primarily as spare parts.

We are thrilled to present our latest partnership with Lufthansa, and to offer a piece of history to you!

The Boeing 747 remains a wide-bodies, four-engine jetliner which set the gold standard for aviation in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its maiden flight in 1969 and maintained its place as the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. With wingspans of up to 64.44 meters and vertical elongation at the wingtip that can be as high as 16 meters, the “Hump” silhouette gives the jet its name of Jumbo Jet. With a larger wing size, the 747-400 variant is superior aerodynamically compared to its predecessors, with an extra 1.8 meters (6 ft) in wing length and a 6-ft high winglet angled upwards and slightly outward.

Each tag is unique to the aircraft it comes from. Depending on the plane, they may differ in haptics, material thickness and color. Minor blemishes on the tags serve as a reminder of the aircraft’s history – small scratches, flaky paint and imperfections are all normal marks of wear and tear. These unique quirks are not the result of the production process, but reflect the state of the aircraft material that is upcycled to make Aviationtags. To keep your tag in pristine condition, we advise the use of our Aviationtag protection cover.
