This Boeing 717, the 37th of 156 constructed, was originally delivered to Bangkok Airways in July 2000 as HS-PGP, beginning a storied journey through various liveries and carriers throughout its lifetime. Next, it made the transition from serving Spanair as EC-KNE to Blue1 as OH-BLP. In 2016, under the registration N987DN, it became an integral part of Delta Air Lines' fleet, traversing short and medium-haul domestic routes. Now, in 2024, it takes on a new identity in the PlaneTags collection.

The Boeing 717, born from McDonnell Douglas' MD-95 project and later integrated into Boeing's portfolio, represented a significant milestone in aviation. As a versatile narrow-body jetliner tailored for short to medium-range flights, it filled a crucial niche in the market, facilitating efficient operations for regional airlines and low-cost carriers. Its enduring legacy lies in its reliability, efficiency, and adaptability, making it a cornerstone of modern air travel and a beloved asset for airlines worldwide. Today, Delta has over 70 717s in its fleet.

PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags

  • Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. 
  • Unique -  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. 
  • Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card. 
  • Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.

*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.

    Plane tags

    Not of quality I anticipated. My two tags had an unfinished backing, one of the wire tag loops was broken. With no backing I do not see much useful usage except keeping in a drawer.

    Delightful Delta 717

    This is the first tag that I’ve ever seen that has two different thicknesses. It goes from the bottom with the standard thickness and expands upwards to 4 times the original thickness. Most tags are either one or the other but never both on the same tag. Thanks goes out to the crew at MA for their great efforts to make a superb product.

    Stars & Stripes...and everything else, too!

    Loved this release and the tags are amazing (especially that Star)! Purchased both packages and the remaining individual tags and all together the entire collection is as nice as a Delta B717! Thanks PlaneTags!
