A special piece of a bomber that is still a vital cog in our nuclear defense. It would be great to see Plane Tags acquire the B-47 Stratojet to go with it.
As a flight helmet collector and aviation enthusiast, I must admit that I have always had a soft spot for the mighty B-52 and S.A.C. in general. This skin tag is a tiny piece of History I'm very glad to have at home, greenish mate looks and smooth patina make it looks awesome displayed close to my B-52 navigator helmet and S.A.C. lighter / patches.
This particular B-52 tag was apart of a giant flex by the U.S. military to fly around the world nonstop to demonstrate nuclear strike capabilities. Must have when it comes to everything Cold War.
I purchased a solid yellow tag and am very happy with the project.
Great, I like the pattern and the texture. I have a piece of history that is simple in its nature but means a lot to me. Thank you.
Great product. Bought this for a friend who's dad had flown them. She was very touched thinking this could be one of the airplanes he flew.
I have collected many items over the years out of respect and admiration of many family members who have been aviators in the military, civilian and commercial side of the business including fixed rotors. My families entrance into aviation commenced during WW 2 with the Army Air Corps and continues to this day.
Very cool item, 100% recommend getting it engraved
I bought this tag as a Christmas present for my stepfather. I also found a copy of Time magazine with this plane on the cover. He loved it!!! It made the perfect gift!!!! This is the 3rd tag I’ve bought and I see more in my future!!!
Proud to have a piece of this legendary plane!
Item conforms to the description and fast overseas shipping. I couldn't wait to have this testimony of a historic aircraft like the B-52 "Lucky Lady III" Thanks to Planetags for these rarities from aviation enthusiasts. I'll make more purchases from you in the future
Item showed up as advertised, very happy. Prompt dispatch, easy to track. Australia Post asleep at the wheel, not MOTO's fault of course, they held up their part of the bargain :)
Excellent work , exactly what i expected to see and my choice for a gift!
An amazing piece of history! What a unique item. I swear I can smell the oils, fluids, and gases that are distinctive of military aircraft.
Fantastic diversity of patinas from this B-52. Already 5 different variations of greens in my collection. Great series !
Still not received item, still in Los Angeles, ordered mid sept, guess due to covid
I’ll let you know if and when I receive it -
These tags are so fantastic that I bought four of them. They are not pieces from a random B-52, but from a Stratofortress that once occupied a prominent role within the Strategic Air Command. B-52B-35-BO 53-0394 (“Lucky Lady III”) had circled the globe in 1957 and was featured in Life magazine. Years later, after it was retired, the aircraft was sent to the old U.S. Air Force Museum in Ohio. With these PlaneTags, Dave and MotoArt have people again talking about a famous airplane that was likely forgotten by many people when it was largely hidden in Walter Soplata's collection. I’m grateful Mr. Soplata rescued parts of the Lucky Lady III from the scrapper, and I’m glad that Dave has made those parts into PlaneTags.
It's going to be a gift.
