Tropical Luxury Among the Clouds
Sharing Aloha Since 1929

Introduced first as Inter-Island Airways in 1929 with a fleet of only two 8-seater Sikorsky S-38s and a Bellanca monoplane, Hawaiian Airlines® slowly grew from island transport to Transpacific operations, flying from Oakland to Honolulu in a record setting 13 hours, 54 minutes in 1941. The Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, known affectionately as “El Ten Eleven”, joined the Hawaiian fleet in 1985, opening up service to West Coast gateway cities and putting the airline in direct competition with the major US carriers for the first time in its history.



The iconic Hawaiian Airlines logo and livery have also evolved over the years. The Iiwi bird was added in 1952, later replaced with the jetbird. In 1973, Pualani, Flower of the Sky, was unveiled to celebrate the airline’s change to an all jet airline, becoming one of the first female icons on the tail of a commercial plane. Updates to Pualani in 2001 and 2017 have featured her more prominently and added touches to show the hibiscus and wind in her hair. Over the years, she has become a beloved symbol of the aloha spirit and a gracious island welcome, underscoring the commitment to providing hospitable, premium service.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

The Hunt for Aviation History 


When MotoArt owner Dave Hall discovered our “El Ten Eleven” he knew he had to have it for the PlaneTags collection. “The L-1011 was such a great plane with such an amazing appreciation for it,” says Hall. “We’re always asked if we can offer L-1011 PlaneTags. What makes this one extra special is that it’s Hawaiian Airlines. Their history and the beauty of their logo and livery make this one of our favorites.”

A Lifetime of Flight


Our L-1011 began its journey as N702DA, in service for Delta Air Lines from October 25, 1973. On December 15, 1973 it flew Delta’s first revenue L-1011 flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia with 39 passengers aboard. It served with Delta until 1984 then went to Total Air as N702TT for two years. She then went to Air America from 1986 through 1987, changing registration once again to EI-BTN. She spent her final years in the Hawaiian Airlines fleet before retiring. She was scrapped at Mojave Air and Space Port.


Capturing the Spirit of the Tropics


Each PlaneTag has been handcrafted to capture the striking colors of the Hawaiian Airlines livery. Choose your PlaneTag to highlight your favorite color combination, or collect all 5 to complete the series – featuring Hibiscus Red, Pualani Pink, white, white/Hibiscus Red, and white/Pualani Pink. This is a limited edition PlaneTag, so claim your L-1011 before they’re gone for good.

DISCLAIMER


Handmade Aviation Tags

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.

- 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.

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.

    Gorgeous unique tag

    I love the ability to get custom engraving on the back with my contact information and I love the unique nature of the product. I love that it is upcycled and is part of a genuine airplane. I love the colors and customer service. Will buy from again.

    Amazing memento....

    I’ve been waiting for an L-1011 tag to come up for a long time...my father, Lenard Mead, worked for Lockheed for 48 years and he was a liaison test engineer at Plant 10 in Palmdale, CA. He worked on every single one that was produced so this is extra special. My dad touched this plane and I now have a piece of him with me everyday. Thank you for finding this bird and making the tags.
