Your reliable Aviation Gift Source since 1989

Airplane Skin Tags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because Airplane Skin Tags are made from real fuselage, each Airplane Skin Tags 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 Airplane Skin Tags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of Airplane Skin Tags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your Airplane Skin Tags. The images on the website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular Airplane Skin Tags.

Product description

Please note:††The Patina PlaneTags you receive will arbitrarily be chosen from the limited quantity as shown in the photo. No requests accepted.

Our C-54 served in the Navy from 1945 until the mid 1970's. This is where things get interesting and a bit confusing. Many of these tough birds went on to civilian service, including our C-54. Because of a mix up of a few numbers it was reported lost in the Pacific Ocean at one point. Yet, it appears to have been reregistered as HK-1807 and flown many years as a charter aircraft in Colombia. It is certain, however, that Bill Dempsay† added it to his fleet of fire bombers. Tanker #109 was fitted with a 2,000 gallon belly retardant tank and used for fighting wildfires for USFS and BLM contracts until the mid 1980's. Read more about its history in our blog:†C-54 Skymaster: The Mysterious Tanker 109

This C-54 remained at Marana, AZ, for decades, with the hopes the fleet would fly again. It was parted out, but we were able to acquire material for a limited edition of 3000 tags. MotoArt is thrilled to add this storied C-54 Skymaster to our growing fleet of PlaneTags. Don't miss adding a memento from this warbird-turned-firefighter to your collection.†
