Boeing 767 Plane

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.

*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.

    The Gimli Glider: Your new lucky charm

    I was lucky to get this tag during it’s original release, and when the Gimli Museum released some for there 40th anniversary of the incident. This is definitely a collectible for those who believe in good luck as after reading the history of this airframe and how the pilots glided this plane safely to the ground with no fatalities!

    First Plane Tag Of Many

    I bought this after learning about the Gimli Glider's story and all of the circumstances that led to it landing safely when it ran out of fuel. It was something to remind me to hold on to hope when things look really really bad, and that unconventional knowledge or methods could turn the tide.

    My First Plane Tags

    Well, I knew of Plane Tags for a long time, but when these came out I had to get it because it's such an iconic Canadian plane that took place during the early days of conversion to metric. Its well documented with many documentaries so having a piece of history just makes it all the more special.

    The Historic Gimli Glider

    Though the tag may be plain white, it is the history behind this tag that makes it such a joy to own. Many people know of the story behind the Gimli Glider yet only a few people can say that they own an actual piece of the Glider itself. Motoart has done a great service tagging this historic aircraft, saving it from being recycled and turned into cans. I wish there was more material and color variations, but regardless this made for a fantastic first tag.

    Special piece of history

    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.

    Awesome piece of history!

    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!

    The sceptics are unconvinced......

    ....They say that the luggage tag could have come from any plane ;-) Whatever, it makes for a great conversation piece. Love it!!

    Gimli Glider: Air Canada Boeing 767

    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.

    Gimli Glider: why did I buy and what do I think?

    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.
