Custom Titan II Missile PlaneTag

Description

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These Titan II PlaneTags are made from the skin of a Titan II missile, specifically from the spacer section used to make the Reentry Vehicle (where the W-53 warhead was carried) to the Stage II airframe.  The material used is 2014-T6 aluminum, an alloy of aluminum and copper that was formulated specifically for the Titan II and not found anywhere else. The slightly golden color is the result of Iridite, a chromium chemical conversion process applied to the airframe to prevent corrosion. 

Pima Air & Space Museum / Arizona Aerospace Foundation generously donated the Titan II materials. The materials had been at the museum for decades, most likely taken from various launch sites during decommissioning or to be used as spare parts.

MotoArt is proud to partner with the Titan Missile Museum, a sister museum to Pima Air & Space Museum, in offering a very limited run of 700.  Titan II PlaneTags can be purchased while visiting this incredible museum or here on own page. The Titan Missile Museum, located in a former missile silo, is dedicated to preserving. the memory of this part of Cold War history and educating visitors.

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. Collect them all!
  • Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display

Variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag. As a result, you will not have an option to select the exact color.

    Great heavy duty tag.

    This is a great piece of history, and as always, great quality and engraving. This is a nice thick piece of aluminum/copper alloy, which is much thicker than the airframe skin tags found on several of the other plane tags. I've had the taks I've ordered engraved, which further creates that link to history. I've been very pleased with the tags I have received.

    Cold war momento

    I served 32 years in USAF with many years in the Cold War with SAC. Having tags made from actual Titan Missiles makes my service special and real.

    Simply Awesome & Totally Cool!

    Being a former Titan II Missile Crew member, it’s really cool owning a piece of my own history. Heck, I probably babysat the missile my tag came from when it was still on alert (since I was stationed at DMAFB in Tucson!). Thanks a ton for providing a small piece of my fond memories.

    Great present to honor Dad

    I ordered 3 of the Titan I missile tags for my son, nephew, and nephew-in-law. We were in DC for my brother-in-law's funeral at Arlington. He had worked on missiles while in the Air Force for 22 years, and I gave the guys the tags then. It made a fitting present to remember Dad, father-in-law, uncle. Not a dry eye in the place!

    Real History: Peace Through Deterrence

    Great way to remember our history and all who fought to defend our country. High quality all around and best if you have it personalized.

    Beautiful piece

    Easy ordering. A touch expensive, but considering the piece; it's a fair price. It's a gorgeous piece of history, a lot thicker than I was expecting.
