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.
Both of my sons love the C-130 tags. The engraving is fantastic! Quick delivery to Melbourne, Australia. Overall a great experience.
4 weeks later, still have not received order.
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!
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.
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)
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.

I’ll be the C-130 PlaneTag on my upcoming flights ✈️
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.
