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

Our aircraft, BuNo 139960 was constructed as an A4D-1 in 1957 and delivered to the VA-34 Blue Blasters, the first Skyhawk squadron to deploy to the Mediterranean. It was later redesignated as an A-4A in 1962 and would spend its career in the US Navy's fleet, operating with a number of different light attack squadrons, mainly in the Mediterranean Sea. It was struck off charge in October 1968, after 11 years of service. The Yanks Air Museum in Chino, CA acquired it and held onto it for several decades until 2021. MotoArt and Yanks have now partnered to preserve the memory of one magnificent Skyhawk, and the legacy of many.
