Description

Our P-51K “Natural” color is any piece of the aircraft skin that is the natural metal finish with a light even finish. Whereas the “Rustic” color would be a piece of metal that has an uneven and darker appearance, often caused by aging over the years. The “Rivets” are a mixed bag of finishes that will be supplied in random order. Thank you for your interest in PlaneTags.

Ultimate Fighter Aircraft

Produced by North American Aviation beginning in 1940, the P-51 Mustang is a long-range, single-engine fighter, which proved invaluable to the Allied Powers during World War II, the Korean War, and other conflicts. Boasting a powerful engine with mighty cannons, its superb handling, performance, firepower, and long-range capabilities proved to be invaluable in changing the course of the Wars.

Like many WWII era warbirds, the story of 44-12852 did not end in 1945. After flying - and crashing - in the 1946 Cleveland National Air Races, she was taken apart, crudely reassembled as a trainer, changed identities, sold and resold many times over. Today, this mighty Mustang, now known as "Frenesi", soars through the skies, performing in air shows all over the world.

In the 1950s, she entered active military service again, flying with the Dominican Republic Air Force under Coronel Rafael Diaz Bonilla - known as "El Diablo Rojo" (The Red Devil).  Known then as FAD 1900, she was part of the last squadron of combat ready Mustangs in the world.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

The authentic P-51 fuselage skins were removed during the restoration of 44-12852 and were used as patterns for the new skins to keep the aircraft flying over the years. We received these from Aero Trader in Chino, California, giving us the opportunity to add this historical authentic aircraft skin to our encyclopedia of aviation history.  Read more about it on our PlaneTags blog.

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.
