OUR PLANE'S STORY

BuNo 163124 was originally designed as an F/A-18A, and later converted to a F/A-18A++. 163124 served with distinction, flying with the VFA-15 “Valions”, the VMFA-312 “Checkerboards,” and the VMFA-115 “Silver Eagles”. MotoArt acquired the derelict aircraft in 2024. 

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather multirole fighter jet. Designed for both air superiority and strike missions, it is equipped with an array of weapons and avionics enabling it to perform air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack operations. Serving as a cornerstone of the U.S. Military's carrier-based air power, the F-18 has proven its versatility and reliability across countless missions globally, inspiring awe with every flight.


Don't miss your chance to preserve a piece of this extraordinary history. Add F-18 Hornet PlaneTags from BuNo 163124 to your collection today and keep the legacy of this remarkable aircraft alive.

DISCLAIMER


Perfect Aviation Gift

PlaneTags are: 

  • 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.

    Such a buzz

    Always great service from the Plane Tags team from a customer in Australia. Australia has only just retired the RAAF F/A-18A planes and I've grown up hearing them blast over us at airships around the country. So cool to be able to have a piece of one to remember them.

    F-18 Hornet

    A nice piece of history of our Aviation. Nicely designed and crafted using the latest in laser technology. Well documented notes that allows you to know where is this tag from and where it has been before getting into your hands.

    F/A-18A Solid Package

    I was fortunate enough to secure one of the few Solid Packages and am more than happy with the purchase. The green and brown tags are unique compared to other releases in those colors, and the special edition tag received with the Package is a true standout in my collection. Great job MotoArt!

    Interior Brown & Exterior Gray

    I've become quite partial to brown tags the past year or so and was thrilled when I saw the F-18 BuNo 163124 was going to include an interior Brown in the release mix! Picked up an interior brown and an exterior gray. There seems to be a light green to brown spectrum for these. Mine sits squarely in the middle - definitely brown but on the lighter side with a light green hue. Thanks PlaneTags for another great release!
