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

The newest aircraft to join the fleet is the extraordinary Corsair II, brought to you by MotoArt and our friends at United Aeronautical Corporation. Introducing a former USAF A-7D, 75-0392. Get a closer look at our newest military PlaneTags.

The A-7 Corsair II is a high wing, single engine, subsonic, carrier-capable light attack aircraft. Its name was derived from Vought's F4U Corsair. Produced between 1964 and 1983, more than 1,500 were built. The design was based on the Vought F-8 Crusader and was meant to replace the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk.  The A-7D variant was built specifically for the USAF, to fill the need for a specialized subsonic fixed wing aircraft suited for close air support in South Vietnam. The USAF A-7D Corsair II featured a powerful Allison TF41-A-1 turbofan engine, a new avionics package, a computerized navigation/weapons delivery system, and an M61A1 rotary cannon. 459 were built.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

MotoArt's A-7, 75-0392, was constructed as an A-7D. In 1980 '392 was assigned to the 152nd Tactical Fighter squadron, a unit of the Arizona Air National Guard 162nd Fighter Wing located at Tucson Air National Guard Base, Arizona. It was part of the unit's A-7 Fighter Weapons School, whose mission was to train combat-ready pilots for the Air National Guard with the A-7 and later the F-16. In October 1990, as the last of the A-7Ds in the unit were retiring, it was sent to storage at AMARC, then later salvaged. In 2022, MotoArt acquired '392 from United Aeronautical Corporation.


UAC has served their customers, since 1956, from one of the largest inventories of finished aviation products in the world. MotoArt is honored to partner with them to resurrect '392 as Ling-Temco Vought (LTV) A-7D Corsair II PlaneTags. Don't miss adding the Corsair II to your PlaneTags collection. The Corsair II is destined to become the next F4U Corsair PlaneTags - hard to come by and a challenge to track down. Grab yours today!
