The Grumman Goose was an American-made amphibious aircraft manufactured between 1937 and 1945. It was Grumman Aviation’s first twin-engine plane, first monoplane to fly, and its first plane to be used as a commercial airliner. The Goose was capable of ascension from land or sea, and proved to be a versatile and sturdy design. Although it was initially imagined as a commuter aircraft for wealthy New Yorkers, it later found its identity in other uses, namely as a military transport and utility aircraft during World War II. After the war, its versatility gave it new life with small local airlines in Alaska, California and the Caribbean. 345 G-21s were produced.



OUR PLANE'S STORY

Our G-21A Goose, N88821, was built in 1942 and is the 157th of 345 total Gooses produced. It was delivered to the 6th Air Force/644 Command and served until 1945. After the war, N88821 joined Ellis Air Lines of Alaska and for a time was refitted for water-only operations. Over the years, ‘821 changed hands several times, both disassembled and assembled, before resurrecting once more as C-FEFN and flying the British Columbia coast for the rest of its working career. This Goose racked up an amazing 34K-plus flight hours in grueling all-saltwater operations for nearly 50 years. MotoArt received original material from the restoration of Ole ‘821 and has created a lasting memento honoring the tough and versatile Goose.

    DISCLAIMER

    PlaneTags are Handmade Aviation Tags

    • Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. 
    • Unique -  PlaneTags bear 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.

      Such a variety of colors

      I received a grey goose tag. Wish I were able to secure some of the "rarer" tags but I still really love this tag. It evokes memories of my time in Alaska

      Great Tag

      This is a nice tag, even in the Metal variant. The history of this particular aircraft intrigues me, and the tag makes a wonderful tribute to the plane's story.

      Grumman G-21A Goose

      I am a retired Lockheed Martin employee, but I figured having a plane tag from one of our Long Island, NY competitors would be nice to have. It is a great addition to my Plane Tag collection.
