Boeing 767-200 skin keychain Gimli Glider (Air Canada reg. C-GAUN)

$59.95

The Gimli Glider is the nickname of an Air Canada aircraft that was involved in an unusual aviation incident.

On July 23, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767-233 wide body jetliner, ran out of fuel at an altitude of 41,000 ft, about halfway through its Montreal to Edmonton flight. The flight crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at a former Royal Canadian Air Force base in Gimli, Manitoba.

Cut and engraved directly from the skin of the historic Gimli Glider, this limited edition, one-of-a-kind Plane skin keychain has been resurrected from legend to live on as a versatile and practical memento. Now, you too can hold this token of luck in the palm of your hand.

Plane skin keychains are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because keychains are made from real fuselage, each bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical keychains.
