Custom CH-47 Chinook Planetag #91-00234



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.

Due to the customization production time, please allow 7-10 days for order processing on custom products. 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.

    Little bit of history when you travel!

    Really nice tag with a little history attached to it. Solid, as you would expect from aircraft grade metals, and fun to carry a bit of a helicopter with you! Only thing I would improve on is to maybe have the option of a rubber edge to minimise the noise it makes when swinging on your bags like dogtags.

    Great Helicopter

    I knew of this story of this Chinook having a mid-air with another aircraft. As a former Chinook pilot, it is wonderful to hold a piece of history and to use it as a personal tag on my fly-a-way bag to boot. Light weight, easy to attach, and fast delivery. Glad I got one.

    Owning a piece of an Icon

    As with all Plane Tag products, functional, sturdy and unique. One of the best and certainly unique ways to ID your luggage and gear. The Chinook is an iconic aircraft, it has done so much for so many for so long it is truly a piece of aviation history. This Plane Tag is a brilliant way to let anyone own a little piece of the legacy that is the Chinook
