Handley Page Victor: A RAF Bomber and Tanker

The Handley Page Victor was a British jet-powered strategic bomber, with the K.2 variant serving mainly as an in-flight refueling tanker. XL 191 was built for the Royal Air Force in September 1961 and faithfully served with 55 Squadron, notably providing tanker support during the Falklands War in 1982.

OUR PLANES STORY

From The Soplata Collection of Planes

The Victor K.2 crash-landed short of the runway in Hamilton, Ontario in 1986. Parts of it were donated to the Canadian Warplane Heritage, but the nose was sold to Walter Soplata and became part of his collection in 1987. MotoArt is pleased to preserve the plane in the form of a limited edition of PlaneTags.

DISCLAIMER

Handmade Aviation Tags

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. Collect them all!
  • Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display

    great as always but a little more etching needed

    great product as always but could have deeper etching when pieces are made with more patina.
