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.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

#114 Argonaut was built from TG114, a former Royal Canadian Navy fighter, and has appeared regularly at the Reno Air Races since the 1990s, placing first in Unlimited Silver in 1997 and 2005. Both the Argonaut and Dreadnought were restored by Sanders Aeronautics, world-renowned experts in Sea Fury restoration and racing. 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.

DISCLAIMER

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.

    Awesome piece of Canadian History

    The rivet tag is very nice and has a lot of character. A cool piece of Canadian military history.
