For more than 50 years, the National Championship Air Races have been held annually in Reno, Nevada. This year MotoArt will be returning to the races to celebrate and cheer on some of the fastest and most daring planes and pilots - including two Sea Furies in particular, Argonaut (#114) and Dreadnought (#8).

The Sea Fury was a British fighter-bomber, developed during WWII for the Royal Navy. It was the Royal Navy’s last propeller driven fighter, and also one of the fastest single piston-engined production aircraft ever built. It is powerful, agile, and well suited for the Unlimited Class of air racers - which consists almost entirely of highly modified and stock World War II fighters.


#8 Dreadnought first raced at the Reno Air Races in 1983, placing first in Unlimited Gold in 1983, 1986, 2018 and 2019. She was built up from VZ386, a former Royal Navy and Burma Air Force aircraft. Read more about it on our blog .

There is no other event in the world like the Reno Air Races, where racers take part in the fastest motorsport on the planet. Imagine 8 planes speeding around 7-10 pylons between 150 mph and over 500 mph, 50 feet above the ground. It is incredibly fast and incredibly dangerous - something well suited for the powerful and nimble Hawker Sea Fury.

The newest PlaneTags are made from the original skins removed during the build up and restoration of Dreadnought and Argonaut. Add these legendary racers to your collection and let your imagination feel the roar of the engines and the thrill of the fastest motorsport on earth.

PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags

  • 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.

    Reno Racers!

    Absolutely love being able to get these at the air races and get the tags signed by the pilots who flew them! Thanks Planetags!

    Chasing the "BEAR" Reno air racing at it's best.

    These tags are some of the most interesting as far as the color mixing goes. The blue, yellow and silver mix is beautiful and of course no two are the same which is why I have several. Five stars on this one folks!
