This limited-edition tag is crafted from the actual fuselage of our Boeing 747-400 B-HUJ, otherwise known as ‘Uniform Juliet’.
During her 21 years with us, Uniform Juliet scored a few notches on her metal belt. On 6 July 1998, she was the first commercial aircraft to land at Chek Lap Kok International Airport and was the first aircraft to complete a transpolar flight from JFK airport in New York that same year – the longest non-stop passenger service at the time. She was also the ‘press plane’ for US President Bill Clinton’s visit to China in 1998.
Uniform Juliet’s final flight was from Haneda, Tokyo to Hong Kong on 1 October 2016, after which she flew into a well-earned retirement.
