Snag some luck right out of the skies with this historic Boeing 767. On July 23rd, 1983, this miracle plane bearing tail number 604 for Air Canada ran out of fuel at 41,000 feet. Captain Robert (Bob) Pearson and crew avoided major catastrophe, managing to glide the aircraft safely through the air to make an unheard of emergency landing at Gimli.
Cut and engraved directly from the skin of the historic Gimli Glider, this limited edition, one-of-a-kind Plane Tag has been resurrected from legend to live on as a versatile and practical memento. Now, you too can hold this token of luck in the palm of your hand.
Join us for a special broadcast with MotoArt owner Dave Hall, along with special guests, including Gimli Glider author and expert Wade Nelson.
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.

I have several planetags, but this one is really special. I have always been interested in the story of the Gimli Glider and then to have the ability to own a piece of this special plane is awesome. The product itself is terrific, but these limited release tags for specific aircraft is what makes this planetag really special for me.
Tutto come descritto, perfetto!
I ordered two of these tags from MA. Both are beautifully cut pieces of history from the famous Gimli Glider (Air Canada Flight 143). I use one on my luggage and the other I keep tucked safe away. These are totally sold out now so you'll have to go aftermarket to find one! Good luck!
My car keys are hanging for from a little piece of aviation history. I absolutely love my plane tags.
....They say that the luggage tag could have come from any plane ;-) Whatever, it makes for a great conversation piece. Love it!!
You all do a great job at preserving history! Fabulous presentation! Thank you!
What a piece of history to have! I’m hoping a little Gimli’s luck rubs off on me....time will tell!
I love the concept and am impressed with the quality and history of the aircraft. I have since purchased more.
I keep it on my purses for good luck. I love the history and yes I know it is a baggage tag. Thank you so much
When I saw the tag I had to have it. I bought 2, one for a gift. I have been to Gimli. I know the story and I used to fly on Air Canada a lot. It hangs on my everyday work bag and I get asked about it. One young lady asked me if I was a retired pilot because of the “retired” on the tag. I had to explain that I might be retirement age but I am not a retired pilot. Honest. The tag is really well made and, while I carry it every day, it doesn’t have a scratch or a chip.
I ordered this for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. It’s made well and looks great!
I have this tag on my everyday carry bag for work. I knew of the Gimli Glider. I have even been to Gimli, although nothing to do with this flight. What this flight crew did was nothing short of phenomenal. You have likely read that other pilots in simulators failed. So what does Air Canada do? They PUNISHED the crew. Idiots they are, but they had to reinstate because the crew were getting so many accolades from their peers. Once retired, Air Canada should have put this plane in a garden with a holy water fountain so that people could go rub it for luck. No, they junked it, and I am beyond pleased to think I have a small piece of it so I will always remember what that crew did and this tag further prompts me to do that. Thanks for making this and thanks for making the tag available.
Love that I can own a piece of the historic Gimli Glider
Gift was for my nephew. He liked it. I was not impressed with the delay in service. Gift was not received for Christmas.
I bought this for my sister who is obsessed with aviation crash investigations, & who loves the incredible story of how pilots prevented this plan crash from becoming a disaster by gliding it to the ground. She was absolutely thrilled with being able to own a piece of this very special plane. Thank you!
I am using mine as a key fob.
Excellent! All 3 items came in a timely fashion & an excellent keep sake. Well done Plane Tags
Great product! It is a bit expensive, but it is also a piece of history. My Gimli Gilder tag is my good luck charm!
I bought it as a gift for my husband. He loved it.
I think you guys need to consider using either FedEx or UPS because this is ridiculous. I still haven’t received it...
