Delta welcomed its first 757 in November 1984, kicking off a 38 year relationship between the airline and the 757 that is still going strong today. MotoArt continues the Delta collection with the addition of N627DL, a Boeing 757-200, to the fleet.
The Boeing 757-200 is a twin engine, narrow body airliner. The 757 made sense to Delta for many reasons, including its fuel efficiency and capabilities. Its modern wing design and engines provided better fuel mileage and allowed it to cruise at higher altitudes and take advantage of even better fuel economy. The 757 in some configurations could fit almost 40 more passengers than the 727s they were replacing and only required two pilots instead of three. The 757 became the backbone of Delta’s short to mid-range routes for many years, launching them through the competitive 1980s and 90s, into the millennium and beyond.
Additionally, for each PlaneTag purchased a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Delta Care Fund. The Delta Care Fund was established in 2007, and operates completely on employee contributions. The Fund’s goal is to help current employees, retirees, and their survivors in the event of financial hardship, catastrophic events, or assistance for continuing education at an accredited college or university.
OUR PLANE'S STORY
N627DL was built as a 757-232, and delivered to Delta in April 1987 as part of the airline’s original order of 116 -232 models. In 2007, Delta honored baseball legend Hank Aaron and his home run record by branding this 757 as “Hank Aaron 755”. The special livery depicted Aaron’s 715th historic home run which surpassed Babe Ruth’s record. “755” flew for Delta exclusively throughout its 30 year career until retirement in June 2017.
Delta’s fleet would not be complete without the 757, and neither will your PlaneTags collection. Add a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757-200 to your fleet today.

PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags
- 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.
- Please Note: Due to limited quantities, combination colors you may receive will vary.
*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.
