PLEASE NOTE: After 45 years of seasonal weather, much of the original paint has faded, disappeared, and become fragile - often leaving merely bare metal or primer. Traces of paint remain in varying degrees. Please understand that PlaneTags will ship these in random order as chosen from the variations shown in the photos.

As part of our quest to catalog aviation history, we are over the moon to bring you an often-requested, much-respected plane - the Lockheed C-121G Super Constellation. This isn’t just any Super Connie; it’s NASA’s N420NA - an instrument of science and a symbol of technical innovation from the amazing Lockheed designers.

The MotoArt team discovered this C-121 at a salvage yard in 2022 and couldn’t believe their luck once they learned its history. Its career began in 1953 as BuNo 131642 when it was delivered to the U.S. Navy as an R7V-1. By 1959, it was one of 32 R7V-1s transferred to the USAF, reclassified as a C-121G, and registered S/N 54-4065. In 1963, it was loaned to NASA with another Super Connie, 54-4076, or NASA 421, as it became known. The two were used to calibrate ground-based tracking stations for the Mercury, Apollo, Gemini, and Agena space programs. After spending many years with NASA, N420NA was later used to test explosives before being sold by the DOD in 1978. 

The Lockheed Super Constellation, a four-engine, prop-driven airliner, was designed to fly long distances and was equipped with powerful engines and state-of-the-art avionics, making it one of the most technologically advanced airliners of its time. Airlines such as TWA and Pan Am found it well-suited for long-haul flights due to its fuel efficiency, capacity, and range. Passengers appreciated its spacious cabins and luxurious touches. It was adapted for military use to transport troops/cargo, surveillance, and search and rescue missions in the Korean War, Vietnam War, and throughout the Cold War years.

The Lockheed Super Constellation is one of our most requested aircraft, and MotoArt is honored to have such an esteemed plane join the PlaneTags fleet. Don’t miss adding this very limited edition to your PlaneTags collection today.

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.
