Aircraft Information and History - The “Super Guppy Turbine” F-BTGV first flew on the 24th August 1970 under the registration N211AS for “Aero Spacelines” in its original livery. After a year of service, the aircraft was sold and transferred to “Airbus Industrie” and repainted into its Airbus livery in 1971 which stayed until the aircraft was, unfortunately, scrapped. To this day only 5 of these iconic aircraft have been produced with this one being “Number 1” the first one of the production line.

By having these Bitesize pieces the aircraft can live on for many years to come in a different form, albeit a sad end to such an iconic airframe.
Each Bitesize piece has been hand cut and has had all edges lovingly polished to ensure there are no sharp areas.
Condition - Although a beautiful aircraft, she has undergone restoration and been sat for many years on display. As a result, each Bitesize piece is unique and will show the signs of this iconic aircraft's journey.
Size - Some Bitesize pieces may differ in length and width, this is down to the position of the cut and the space between each rivet. We aim to provide 3 rivets per Bitesize piece and due to the rivet positioning, each piece will vary in size.
