"The Leader of the Pack" is back! MotoArt presents the Second Edition of our Rockwell B-1B Lancer PlaneTags, created from the original skins of 82-0001, the very first B-1B ever produced. After the launch of the first series of 1,000 B-1B PlaneTags in 2017, additional sections of the aircraft surfaced. We were fortunate to secure enough material for this Second Edition.

The B-1 Lancer is a USAF supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy bomber that first flew in December 1974. After the B-1 program was canceled in 1977, it was revived by President Ronald Reagan and the B-1B was born in October 1984. Using its variable-sweep wings, the B-1 employs the forward-wing setting during takeoff, landing, aerial refueling, and some high-altitude weapon drops. Aft-wing sweep is the main combat configuration, typically used during high subsonic and supersonic flight. Since then, the B-1 has continually evolved to meet the demands of its role as a strategic nuclear deterrent and combat proven warplane, remaining in service with the Air Force Global Strike Command until the arrival of the B-21. 

OUR PLANE'S STORY

82-0001, christened “Leader of the Fleet," was the first B-1B out of 100 that came off the production line. Assembled using airframe parts from the planned fifth B-1A, it rolled out on September 4, 1984 and took its first flight on October 18, 1984.  ‘0001 flew 138 test missions over a total of 617 hours, before beginning the next part of its mission as a weapons-loading trainer in August 1988. It was dismantled in May 1995 to comply with the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. Parts of the airframe were used for JP-8 fire propagation testing at Wright-Patterson AFB, while MotoArt was lucky to acquire material to create PlaneTags. 

Don’t miss this second edition of the best selling Rockwell B-1B Lancer PlaneTags! The B-1B remains in service with the USAF and under Homeland Security restrictions, making this material nearly impossible to come by. Add B-1B Lancer PlaneTags to your collection or give as a gift that will never be forgotten.

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.

 

Bomber PlaneTags

Don’t let these bombers get away, like our sold out B-29 and B-17G. Add these to your collection before they are gone.


*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.

    B1 Exterior Grays

    Sad that I missed out on the original B1 release, so I was happy to grab a tag from this second release. It goes well with all of my other military gray tags.

    Bad to the Bone!

    These tags are awesome! They're a little steep in price but more than worth it. Such great history in this airframe and you can see all the patina on the exterior gray variations!

    A piece of modern history

    Designed to replace the B-52 this swing wing beast has always been a great aircraft to collect. The similarities between the TU-160 are uncanny but I certainly would prefer the Lancer which is a proven veteran of Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. Nukes, JDAMs dumb bombs this plane's got you covered. Such a beautiful tag to go with my other collection!

    Bad to the bone

    Having this planetag in my collection leaves me speechless! Being able to hold a piece of aircraft like the B-1 is incredible, I am very lucky to be one of the lucky few who were able to snap one of these amazing planetags!

    Leadership

    Oh, man, I love this tag. I got a green because it was a color that wasn't represented in my collection, and I count myself super lucky because it has the date "28 DEC 1982" stamped on the back - such a cool detail! I bought it soon after taking on a leadership position at work and it's been a wonderful reminder of all of what I've learned about how to be a leader.

    Great Piece of History

    Bought a couple of these B-1B tags at the Reno Air Races. Just couldn't have a Plane Tags collection without this airplane represented. Being new to Plane Tags at the time, Jimmy helped us out with advising what to look for. He was a great guy and made the whole experience lots of fun.

    Christmas gift

    My teenage grandson loves planes and asked for PlaneTags for Christmas. He was thrilled to receive a couple. When I shared that PlaneTags were now at the Smithsonian, he was quite impressed! Thank you!

    Another great tag for my collection

    I have a number of these now and I love them all. I place them with models of the aircraft that I have acquired over time. Given that, I’m wondering if they could find a few tags for: B58, SBD Dauntless, P61…

    Recently bought? (10 months ago)

    I don’t use it, it’s mounted on a wall collection with many others. I bought this ten months ago and now you ask me what I think?
