PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Planetag is cut from a Boeing CH-47 Chinook that was first delivered to the United States Army in September 1968 as a C model serial #68-15814. In 1991 it was then converted to a D model and issued a new serial #91-00234 and assigned to the Army Nation Guard in Stockton, California under Company C - "Delta Schooners". On  February 11th, 1998 this was involved in a mid-air collision with a civilian light aircraft.
This American twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter, developed by American rotor-craft company Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Vertol (later known as Boeing Rotorcraft Systems), is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters (capable of lifting up to 50k pounds) - as well as one of the fastest.

*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.

* Please Note:  Domestic Shipping: 3-5 Days.  International Shipping: 8-15 days

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.

    Chinook tag with a story.

    Like on every tag the craftsmanship is superb. Sharp details, nicely achieved design and the story behind the tag. I am absolutely satisfied. The quality of the engraving and the dedicated attention to my request by planetags. I needed this tag to be dedicated to my son (Army guy) and his very first trip on a Chinook during a Training Rotation in Europe. Long version below It has been six years since my son went enlisted US Army. During his first Training Rotation (Europe-Poland) his unit was participating on a join training exercise with NATO allies. Why his CO decided to put him aboard a Chinook? that still is a enigma because he's not an infantry soldier. Matias/my Army son was very impressed , the Chinook's back ramp was fully open and guarded by a fearless guy manning a gun. The rest of the guys were all infantry , big, geared and with the stare that this was just another ride. The trip was of about 20 minutes, the Chinook stayed low, following the terrain contours, almost touching the treetops. He was thrilled and impressed. He was just a junior NCO still growing and fitting into his armor/gear vest and becoming the soldier he is now. I am showing the PlaneTags that I got for him. A piece of metal that once was part of a Chinook, that may had transported many of our soldiers to train, to deploy and hopefully back to safety. This tag completes me, this tag tells part of the story of a great machine, and now engraved part the story of my son. Of all the tags I have in my collection this is one of two most important ones. The other one is the Blackhawk, and yes it has to do with my Army son, but that goes on another review

    CHINOOK

    I'm a huge fan of the CH-47 Chinook. When I found out MotoArt had a plane tag of it I had to have one. I like the tag...don't love it. I was hoping/expecting a tag that was the traditional Chinook green that you always see however my tag is grey/black and very thin. Not sure what section of the Chinook it came from. Overall still nice to have a piece of history from such an amazing chopper.

    Airborne Memories!

    While many buyers are commemorating their days of flying the Chinook, I ordered this PlaneTag to memorialize my many jumps out of this aircraft. We used to call them “Hollywood jumps” because they were largely bare-*** (daytime , no equipment) and the Chinook was a blast to jump out of. Most of mine were out of Canadian Chinooks but I had several out of the US model. I love the colour and quality of the PlaneTag and everyone who’s ever jumped out of one should get one of these! PK

    Very happy with my tag

    I recently retired and decided to get a new keytag that not just reflected my service but was also rugged and would last me for years, Your CH-47 tag was almost perfect as a reminder of the time I flew over al-Anbar and got shot at while on my way back to Camp Victory. This is a keepsake I will always have to remind me where I've been and who I have been.

    Most thoughtful gift.

    My US Army M.O.S was 67U Ch-47 Maintenance and 66U Ch-47 Aircraft Technical Inspector from 1975- 1985. So when I received my Ch-47 tag it really hit home. The most unique and thoughtful gift I've ever received. Thanks Stacey.

    Boeing CH-47 Chinook PlaneTag

    So glad that Planetags released both the historic CH-46 and its big brother the CH-47. Both tags look wonderful.

    Family History

    Our daughter in law was a Blackhawk pilot in Iraq and we have purchased the helicopter items for her and she has enjoyed this side of history that she did not fly in.

    Historical Aircraft

    It was great to get my hands on this tag. I recently discovered a picture of this aircraft during it's service in Vietnam when it delivered an O1 to the Australian Task Force base at Nui Dat.

    Flight of 3

    Added another piece of travel luggage, so I needed another tag. Really liked the 2 tags I already have. Added the third. I'm a retired US Army aviator who spent 7 years flying Chinooks.
