Aviationtag A380 9V-SKA and my crosswind single engine landing
The flood disaster that ravaged parts of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate in July has left many people with nothing. More than 200 people have died, many are injured and missing – the destruction defies comprehension and countless people have lost everything.
Aviationtag was offering ten tags from the first A380 edition of the former Singapore Airlines 9V-SKA for auction. It was the first A380 ever to enter scheduled service and also the first ever to be retired. The tag is cut from a part of the skin that says “Cut Here In Emergency” in big red lettering.
I used to be the ground engineer for this aircraft at HKG in 2017. It means a lot to me. The story behind this was driving me to desire to become an airline pilot. Although this is nearly the toughest task to accomplish in Hong Kong where I am living, still, I chose to go on.
