OUR PLANE'S STORY

Serial number 70-0451 was the 65th C-5A of 81 produced, entering service at Charleston Air Force Base in 1972 and later stationed at Travis Air Force Base until 1992. It then served at Kelly Field Annex, Texas, and participated in missions such as Operation Nickel Grass and Antarctic research. Retired in 2017 with 24,656.9 flight hours, it was preserved by MotoArt and Travis AFB in 2024 as PlaneTags, honoring its storied service.

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy has played a pivotal role in aviation history, known for its unmatched size and capacity in transporting oversized cargo worldwide. From military deployments to humanitarian missions, the C-5 Galaxy continues to embody strength, reliability, and innovation in air mobility.

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.
