The Lockheed C-130A Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft, with the first C-130A models delivered in 1956. It is now the longest continuously produced military aircraft, and is operating in more than 60 countries. Originally designed for troop, medic and cargo transport, this versatile aircraft has evolved into many other uses and roles: as a gunship for airborne assault, to aerial firefighting and refueling, and is now the main tactical aircraft for many military forces.
*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.

My Uncle flew the C130 and for his 90th Birthday I gave him a C130 Plane tag. Tears of joy ran down his face. GREAT GIFT!
Very Happy with the quality of the tag and engraving.
Like all the other collectors, I can’t wait for the next issue. Even though I usually only get one and occasionally two from each issue, my collection has grown to about 40 different tags.
What a great product, however I should have done the maths ( exchange rate) before I committed myself. But at the end of the day I am completely satisfied with my purchase and It’s pretty cool to know that my tag was once a part of a Hercules. Rob - NZ
Love the color, the etching, and the card that comes with it.
My daughter has got the aviation bug from me. I already had one from the B-52, so I bought her the C-130 for Christmas. Needless to say, she loves it!
I purchased this for a former Lockheed employee. I'm sorry I missed out on the SR71 Blackbird tags.
This was a xmas gift to my viet nam veteran. He loved it. Personally I thought it was a bit pricey. However, her doesnt ask for much but he loved his C130! Probably more than me, his wife. LOL
Outstanding product and fast shipping! I can’t wait to continue my collection.
I was disappointed that the C-130A tag didn't have the serial number of the actual C-130A, as I would have liked to have been able to research the actual aircraft that my tag came from. Instead, all that is stated is that the tag was "Cut from the skin of a retired C-130A airplane."
Need a gift for the aviation fan who has everything? Well this is it! Collect all of them or just get your favorite plane!
I bought this for my father, who is a retired C-130 loadmaster. I can't wait to give it to him for Christmas!
I got this tag to have put on an actual key chain and use it daily. It holds up to getting bumped by other keys and won’t bend in your pocket. These tags are awesome!!
Workhorse of the military.
Perfect ! Easy order, fast delivery, nice product !
This is one of several tags I have and I love them all!!!
I bought it for my brother of a diff mother . We grew up next to March air base love planes ! He loved it . To bad SR71 was sold out ! It’s our fav . Thanx y’all ..
Hung it on my photo vest that I wear when I go to aviation related events. Nice addition. Just sorry that I didn't think to get it engraved.
Developed in 1954, still in production and use internationally today. Packed a punch in war, moving troops, equipment, gunship, bomber. In peace, Deep water Horizon, Hurricane Harvey, firefighting. Understated work horse of aviation technology.
