The Airbus A380 is the largest and heaviest airliner in the world, hands down. Two models of the super jet (9V-SKA and 9V-SKB) are already part of the Aviationtag family and we are super proud to now complete the trio and have the legendary plane sporting registration 9V-SKE and Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 10 on board.
It was in June 2008 that the Airbus A380-300 was delivered to Singapore Airlines. With 471 seats, the plane traveled halfway round the globe during its ten years of service – to Sydney, Mumbai, London and Paris, to name just a few destinations. After 7 years taking to the skies, the MSN 10 was then reconfigured and its capacity reduced to just 441 passengers.
9V-SKE was already removed from service in the autumn of 2018 and returned to its lessor, the German Dr. Peters Group. The aircraft was parked at Tarbes Lourdes Airport (LDE) until it recently started being recycled.
