The DC-4, built as a successor to the “iconic” DC-3 with 4 radial engines and a much larger fuselage, became the prime “heavy” transport for the U.S. Forces which carried men and material to every theater of WWII. After the war the DC-4 became the main hero of the Berlin Airlift. With Berlin surrounded and cut off from the West, airlifting supplies of food and fuel was the only way to keep the population from starving or freezing to death. After a successful life as one of the world’s great airliners, of the 1,200 built only a handful survive today. These aging few still supply food and fuel to rural populations. Cut from the aluminum skin of a retired DC-4 this Plane Tag will allow you to share the Aviation History of this fine 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.
