The Sikorsky EH-60 Black Hawk is a medium lift utility helicopter, equipped with advanced technology to make it extremely effective in day and night missions, in extreme weather and under the toughest conditions. MotoArt welcomes 87-24659 to the fleet - a Sikorsky EH-60, a variant specifically designed for electronic warfare.

The Sikorsky UH-60A was developed by the U.S. Army as a replacement for the aging UH-1 Huey helicopter. An RFP for a new utility helicopter was issued in the early 1970s. Several helicopter manufacturers submitted proposals, including Sikorsky and rival Boeing-Vertol with the YUH-61A. Sikorsky’s UH-60 won and quickly became a mainstay of the Army’s helicopter fleet. 87-24659 was constructed as an EH-60A in 1987. Although its history remains classified, it was known to have served in the Gulf War. 


OUR PLANE'S STORY

The EH-60 variant is an airborne electronic warfare aircraft, specifically developed by the U.S. Army to provide electronic warfare support to ground troops during combat missions. It was equipped with a sophisticated intelligence gathering system to intercept enemy communications and analyze them in real time. It also boasted advanced equipment used to locate and disrupt enemy communications. The YEH-60A took its first flight in September 1981. 61 EH-60As were produced by Sikorsky and used extensively during the early 1990s, during the Gulf War and in Somalia during Operation Restore Hope.

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.

    EH-60A BLACK HAWK 87-24659

    Sikorsky EH-60A Blackhawk 1,864 of 4,500 SN: 87-24659 Very please and surprise of this tag. Beautiful, nice and clean black/dark matte green colour. A tag made out of the skin of a helicopter with stories to tell, but cannot because it's classified. I can tell you this, my Army son did a joyride at Fort Riley, KS (June 2020) and that info I did declassified just for you guys.

    PlaneTag is going to make a helo fan out of me yet!

    Had planned on grabbing a single tag but once seeing them walked away with a 59E, Data, and USArmy. A bit more expensive than I thought or my credit card would have preferred but glad I ate Ramen for a few weeks to get these ;) Seriously, great release...and that's coming from a commercial collector!

    Great addition to Planetags

    This is a great addition to the collection. I got two: one for myself and one for an Army vet friend. We both were very happy with the product.

    Fantastic

    The EH-60A was surprisingly thick for the skin of a helicopter, with great color and markings. PlaneTags have been on a roll this year with bi-weekly releases of amazing aircraft. Love the military and historic aircraft. Keep them coming.

    I scored the last one!

    I’m new to this game and didn’t realize just how fast the tags went! Especially the combo’s. I flagged the white and green one and paid for it, when I went back I found out that it was the last one. So when the new C-121 came out I scored mine 3 minutes after they came out. These guys are the greatest. Paul C.

    Great new tag!

    I've bought a number of tags for myself & given many more as gifts to my military family who have worked on or in these aircraft. The new blackhawk tag is no different; great tag from a great aircraft, upcycled by the great folks at MotoArt! Thank you for another great tag!
