The BAC 1-11 was a short haul, British-built jet airliner, produced by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) from 1964 to 1982, and in Romania as the Rombac from 1982 to 1989. 244 total were built, 235 in the UK and 9 in Romania. British United Airways (BUA) ordered 10 BAC 1-11-200s in 1961, followed by a Braniff International Airways order for 6 planes. The 200 series was the initial production variant and a popular one, 56 were built. Subsequent versions were the 300, 400 and 500, which had larger fuel tanks and better rated engines for a longer range. The One Eleven offered a comfortable flight and spacious cabins, and an extremely quick passenger turnaround time with simultaneous embarking and disembarking through its stairs and interior layout. It was ultimately not as successful as the DC-9 and 737-200 but was ordered by several international airlines including Kuwait Airways, Aer Lingus, Central African Airways and Western Airlines. U.S. based airlines, however, were prohibited from ordering the foreign-produced jet by the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB). 


OUR PLANE'S STORY

N1550 was built as a BAC 1-11-200 series and delivered to Braniff International Airways in October 1965.  It was the 10th of 14 delivered, first painted in the airline’s El Dorado Super Jet livery, but soon after decked out in the classic ochre solid color livery for the remainder of its service with Braniff. It was retired in early 1972, then sold to Allegheny Airlines with 8 other 1-11s. N1550 operated with Allegheny for six more years. In July 1978, it overran the Rochester New York runway due to excessive landing speed and was damaged beyond repair. It was scrapped in 1978. MotoArt acquired in it 2022 and created PlaneTags.

The BAC 1-11 is another beloved aircraft, requested often by PlaneTags collectors because it is so iconic, with only 244 produced. Don’t miss adding one to your collection or inscribing with a personal message for a creative gift for your favorite aviation enthusiast. Order your BAC 1-11 today.

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.

    Finally

    My family moved to Pittsburgh when Allegheny merged with my Father’s employer, Mohawk Airlines. Finally a tag with a personal connection to his career and our family affair with aviation. Maybe a trip to the Vegas area to scrounge some Convair skin and crank out some tags for the old “Hawkers” out there? Thanx, S Franges

    As if frozen in time

    This is a fantastic tag - a former Braniff 1-11 that was later acquired by Allegheny Airlines. And since the cockpit section was salvaged after the aircraft went off the runway in 1978, the piece wears the colors of an airline which morphed into USAir the following year. So, in one purchase you get a piece of vintage metal that still wears an authentic, vintage livery.

    Amazing...as always!

    Every single one of the 35 orders for different 60 tags that I've placed with PlaneTags has been perfect! Thank you for a fantastic product, caring customer service, and exemplary communication! I can not think of a single thing that would make my experience better than it has already been (except receiving my coveted Aloha Mystery Tag for my second Mystery Tag that I just ordered about an hour ago :) Keep up the great work, Dave, Priscyla, & Team!

    BAC 1-11

    I flew on a BAC 1-11 (same type/model) in 1980 from Berlin to London with Dan-Air. Sat way in the back with my parents next to the engine. It was very loud and seating was a tight fit. My mother complained that it was like in a sardine can. Outside, I could see the Rolls-Royce emblem on the engine cowling. I looked at my mom and pointed this out to her, remarking, "look on the bright side, we're flying with Rolls-Royce". Everyone laughed. Still, a memorable aircraft and somehow, unforgettable.
