This Stunning window was cut from a British Airways Boeing 747-400. The popular plane sported registration G-CIVU.

Our upcycling team refurbish the window to preserve the original patina of the aircraft so that no part of unique history is lost in the process. Wrapped in a carbon fibre vinyl with silent silver clock hands.

This clock is made from an original aircraft window which has undergone a lengthy process of restoration, taking the paint back to the metal and brushing. The clock also features a quartz movement and can be hung up

 

British Airways took delivery of G-CIVU in April 1998. It was powered by four Rolls-Royce RB211-524 turbofan engines, and featured a four-class seating configuration. This consisted of 14 First suites, 52 Club World flatbeds, 36 World Traveller Plus recliners and 235 World Traveller seats.

G-CIVU’s service life (and indeed that of the entire remaining British Airways Boeing 747 fleet) was brought to a premature end earlier this year by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This has, unfortunately, been the case for many larger airliners across the world.

The aircraft’s withdrawal from service occurred on March 27th, and it flew to Bournemouth (BOH) for storage on March 31st. It remained here until June 5th, when it made the short flight to Cardiff. As we now know, it has since departed the Welsh capital’s international airport for nearby St Athan.

The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005.

I have attached a screenshot of the airframe history and a few pictures.
