Custom C-130A Hercules Planetag


The Lockheed C-130A Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft, with the first C-130A models delivered in 1956.  It is now the longest continuously produced military aircraft, and is operating in more than 60 countries. Originally designed for troop, medic and cargo transport, this versatile aircraft has evolved into many other uses and roles: as a gunship for airborne assault, to aerial firefighting and refueling, and is now the main tactile airlifted for many military forces. 

*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.

Due to the customization production time, please allow 7-10 days for order processing on custom products. Domestic Shipping: 3-5 Days.

International Shipping: 8-15 days 

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.

    This was a gift for my son who was in the Marine Corp and a crew chief on this plane. He was very excited to have a piece of a plane he spent so much time in.

    This item is for my dad for xmas. He is a retired USAF mechanic who used to work on the C-130. These skins are a really cool idea. Taking parts of a plane and creating something with them instead of letting them rot somewhere.

    Perfect Father’s Day Gift

    My dad flew KC-130s for the Marine Corps, and was in the air refueling combat operations on the first day of Operation Desert Storm. After his service, he’s flown DC-9s, 767s, and 737s, but the Herc is by far the aircraft that means the most to him. Getting him this small piece of his favorite aircraft made him more excited than I could have even expected, and he now keeps it prominently displayed on the zoom bag he takes into the cockpit with him as a pilot for Southwest. On top of just being a cool gift, something small like this can have an immense sentimental and nostalgic effect on a pilot. Can’t recommend this enough!

    Fun surprise

    I think my husband was really surprised that I bought this for him. Unfortunately I have one wrong date, so it’s not perfect, but that was my fault. He was a radio operator/loadmaster on the C-130 during his time in the USMC. He has already attached it to his travel bag.

    Love this company!

    I have purchased from this company several times and it's always the same...Perfect! I have a family full of veterans, airline employees and airplane buffs and these tags are great gifts for them! There are no surprises, tags received are as pictured and the turn around time is fast! (even with personalization) Plane tags are a great way to own a piece of history. (...or gift it)

    Easy to attach to your luggage/bags. It is very sturdy, easily identifiable and my name is clearly printed on it.

    I LOVE MY C-130J PLANE TAG! I had my name and address imprinted on the other side. I proudly show it off on a daily basis on my backpack! I love the colour, I love the imprint of the mighty herc. and my love my name, address, and phone on the other side! This is not my first plane tag...and definitely will not be my last either! Ken D.

    Clever Idea

    Item is unique and a gift for my nephew who flies the C-130 for the USMC. Only small improvement is some of the white custom engraving arrived slightly worn off. I'm afraid that it will wear away quickly, making the info hard to read.
