OUR PLANE'S STORY

44-34156, built in Long Beach, California as an A-26B model, was delivered to the USAAF in 1945. By 1947, it had been retired from active duty and reassigned to the Air National Guard, where it was transformed into a TB-26B. In May 1957, it was decommissioned and sent to AMARG at Davis-Monthan AFB. After being sold as surplus, it exchanged hands multiple times and was ultimately involved in a crash during a forced landing in 1985 while en route to the U.S. Air Force Museum in Fargo, North Dakota.

44-34156 eventually landed in Southern California, with rumors that it was used in the movie industry. It caught the eye of MotoArt PlaneTags owner Dave Hall, who had been looking for a Douglas A-26 Invader. The team was elated to preserve the legacy of the TB-26B, a trainer version of the A-26 Invader, which had been specifically modified by removing combat equipment and adding dual controls to facilitate pilot instruction.

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.
