One of my top two favorite military tags. While never used in combat, a pivotal deterrent to Soviet Cold War transgressions. Sadly, Sep 1, 1952, SAC lost 72 B-36s when a microburst hit Carswell AFB, Texas. The MotoArt folks are top notch! You can’t get this tag soon enough.
I saw the B-36 in person once and it is massive. I actually purchased two tags and gave one away as a gift. My two tags were so different from each other but amazing at the same time.
I first heard/read of the B-36 in 1976 as an eleven-year old... now it my mid-50's, I like-to-believe it helped maintain a preferable modern-history during the difficult early years of the Cold War (i.e. it helped maintain a more-sensible, stabler, safe(r) world - imperfect, maybe - but no nuclear insanity - at least to date). And an engineering wonder, even if it has a military-leaning. Makes me proud to be a (modern) Engineer. Thank you for sharing! I'm sure the 99.9% went to the melting-pot for 're-purposing' = recycling, which in itself is fabulous, but sometimes it's nice to hold & appreciate a miniature piece of history. And now I'l less-likely to lose my keys. Good job! Thanks! Simon
My only complaint is the cost of the product, but i understand that nothing aviation related is cheap.
I never imagined that I would one day own a small piece of a YB-36/RB-36E Peacemaker, much less one that was saved by the legendary Walter Soplata. Thanks, MotoArt staff for making this possible. You also have great service and prompt shipping. My PlaneTags always arrive in excellent condition.
I do not use them I display the tags along with a diecast model.
As a fan of the Peacemaker, I had wanted one of these for some time. An added bonus was the fact that the B-36 piece for sale came from the Soplata Collection. Purchasing was easy, delivery was quick and the piece was exactly as promised. The only drawback is I wish the folks at MotorArt would give you a better idea of where on the plane the piece(s) come from. And that is my biggest issue...which should tell you how happy I am. Enjoy!
Was a gift for my father who had seen a squadron of B36s fly over my grandfather's farm when he was a kid. He loves owning a piece of one of them and a piece of history!
Too good to Use
The B-36 Peacemaker is my favorite aircraft of all time. I've had a fascination with it ever since my childhood, when my late father told me his story of seeing one over Old Town, Maine when he himself was a boy. Never in a million years did I think that one day I might be able to own a piece of one, especially considering how few of them there are remaining. I was glad to hear of the Moto Art crew's acquisition of the Soplata collection's Peacemaker and subsequent Planetag availability. My Peacemaker Planetag is something I will cherish for a very, very long time and I'm thankful I had the opportunity to snag one.
I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH BOTH PURCHAES!!!
I am very happy with the way the tag looks. I want to thank you for your company preserving aircraft like this.
It was a gift for airplane enthusiast. it was extremely well received
I have ordered many of these and they never disappoint! They are very well done and they are great! Each one is different and I love that.
I don't know what PlaneTags did with shipping, but they managed to send my order all over North America without actually arriving. This includes a trip *through* my home city on its way back to the west coast again. It's been like this for weeks. Nobody at PlaneTags offered to help or fix anything. I assume the product is fine, but have no way of knowing.
Nice bit of history, great tag. Shipped quick, and reasonably priced. Tucked between comfortably a Blackbird and a Stratofortress.
This is one of THE coolest things I have ever purchased! I love it. I have a piece of aviation history that I will cherish forever.
The B-36 was always one of my favorite planes. My grandfather flew them for a short time before transitioning into B-47s then B-58s.
Wow what a find very honored to add this gem to my collection thank you
Excellent service and great collectible tag!
