I flew over 130 hours of my career on this specific aircraft as a Flight Engineer with the 703d TASSd at Shaw AFB, South Carolina from 1984-1986. Great to actually own a piece of it after all these years! If it had to be scrapped, this is a great way to keep a piece of it around!
I bought 3 of these tags. The H-3 is the godfather of all rescue helicopters. I am so thankful that these were made. I bought them since my grandad was a FE on the original Jolly’s and he was shot down and was MIA for 52 years. I bought a couple to give to guys that flew with him in SEA on the H3. Come to find out, one of them flew this actual helo after he came back from Nam! Crazy coincidence but it was meant to be.
Great tag. I love every tag I have bought from plane tags!!!
What an amazing piece of history to hold. Mine has amazing patina on it and the grey is a unique color as well! I would highly recommend this to anyone! Great pieces MotoArt!
This plane tag, as well as the others I have purchased, is high quality and represents a desire to honor and share the history of aviation. I look forward to more tags being offered. Hopefully a UH1 Cobra is coming soon.
I love Planetags. Great products and wonderful service.
Thank you for adding the iconic H-3 airframe.
