This B-52 PlaneTag is made from the wing flap of this long ranged jet-powered strategic bomber. Originally designed to carry nuclear weapons during the cold war it has proved it is versatile and ageless. From 1952 - 1962 744 units were produced. Rebuilt and upgraded, the B-52 has served proudly for 64 years and still plays a major role in our country’s defense. Affectionately called “BUFF” by its aircrews which stands for Big Fat Ugly F***er.
Unfortunately we do not know the Tail # on this series. The B-52 PlaneTags were made from the inside wing flap from the Bomber.
Homeland Security restricts us from taking B52 parts. A law that went in place in 2001. These wing flaps were purchased shortly after the laws had changed in Tucson, and they were grandfathered in. We have held onto them for our main product line at Motoart.com as a $75,000 conference table. Sold 2, had one left over. Easier to Tag it and let thousands enjoy it.
The flaps have a Manufacture Stamp on it, but not a serial # of the aircraft.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag 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 PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
