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

P-61s were specifically designed to locate and destroy enemy aircraft at night and in poor visibility, aided by its onboard radar. They were built with the endurance and long-range needed to patrol the night skies for hours and intercept enemy aircraft. Although design and production delays kept them from being active until the final year of World War II, they served in all theaters and filled a major need in the Pacific theater especially. 42-39445 was assigned to the 550th Night Fighter Squadron on January 6, 1945. With only 10 hours of flight time recorded on the airframe, it crashed four days later into Mount Cyclops on the north coast of New Guinea. It would have remained where it crashed, forgotten to history and the elements, if not for the passion and determination of the Strines and the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum.

In 2022, MotoArt partnered with the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum to preserve the unusable original skins from 42-39445. With P-61 PlaneTags, you can carry a small piece of this Black Widow or share it and its incredible story with someone you love. Add a Northrop P-61B Black Widow to your PlaneTags collection today!
