MotoArt’s L-1011 Tristar PlaneTags not only continue the legacy of these iconic aircraft, but also give the opportunity to own a piece of fuselage covered in authentic 23k gold leaf. Lockheed’s only commercial jet, our L-1011 spent its life with Arabic royalty.


Our plane was fit for kings from the start. It was built in 1983 as JY-HKJ and served as the private jet for the King of Jordan and the Jordanian Government. In late 2001, it was purchased by Al Anwa Aviation to fly Prince Abdul Aziz Al Ibrahim and was reregistered as HZ-AB1. The Prince, known as a globe-trotter in pursuit of pleasure, had the interior and exterior renovated, transforming the plane into a majestic, flying palace. AB1 was furnished with everything needed to provide the Prince and his guests with the comfort and extravagance they were accustomed to.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

Flying aboard this Tristar was opulence among the clouds. The interior was lavishly decorated from top to bottom with sumptuous fabrics, fine wood cabinetry, gold-plated fixtures, and even gold seatbelts and ashtrays. AB1’s crowning glory, however, was the thick river of 23k gold which flowed from nose to tail of the plane – the type of finery expected by a Prince for his palace in the sky. Read more about it on our PlaneTags blog.

HZ-AB1 was withdrawn from use in 2013 and stored for the remainder of her years at Victorville. In 2021, MotoArt began the painstaking process of creating a lasting memento of this royal aircraft by preserving the 23k gold leaf found on these luxurious PlaneTags. This is the first time our tags are decorated with authentic gold. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own the thickest PlaneTag produced to date -the thick, all-gold PlaneTags are very limited in quantity. Add a stunning 23k gold L-1011-500 PlaneTag to your collection 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.

      Fantastic Tag-Thick, Heavy and Gold

      Outside of the NASA MLP-2, this tag, as it is from an aircraft, is the thickest tag in my collection. If you are a serious collector, this tag is definitely for you.

      Silver And Gold

      An iconic and very unique flying palace with a complete defensive protection system. The El Ten eleven 500 series is the jet age’s Norma Jeane. This release has the most classy tags, in shape, colors and GOLD. Definitely a must have !

      L-1011 Blue/Gold, Blue and white

      Just received the combo tag and the blue and white tag. Really, these are, in my opinion some of the best Planetags I have ever seen. The workmanship and the colors are really amazing. I am surprised that these are not selling at a faster rate. Considering that only 50 L-1011-500 were constructed, and a sum total of 250 L-1011s, this makes these tags a rarity. Compare to the thousands of 747s and even DC-10s, the L-1011 is truly an aviation rarity. Another fact: there is only ONE flying L-1011 worldwide. Want to see it? Then visit the Mojave Airport and there you will find the Stargazer L-1011 operated by Northrop Grumman to launch satellites. It's well worth it. It is supposed to be retired in the near future which will mean the end of the L-1011 as an actual flying aircraft. I wouldn't hesitate and buy one of these glorious Planetags before they too, vanish into aviation history.

      A sentimental piece of history.

      The L-1011 was the first widebody I ever flew on (on a 1 hour domestic flight oddly enough) when I was about 10 years old. I remember being so amazed by it when it pulled up to the gate. Now having a piece of one is really exciting since so few were made. The planetag is great and I'm very happy with it!

      Fit for royalty!

      I bought one of the combo tags - at the moment, the thick-gold is a little rich for my blood. The combo is gorgeous! The gold-leaf portion has a burnished finish, with a protective layer of clear laminate over it. The dark blue portion is also lovely, a deep, rich, glossy finish. Definitely fit for royalty. The design is perfectly struck (the vintage Lockheed logo is a nice touch - perhaps Moto can add that to the remaining HA L-1011 tags) but not deep. Overall, a very nice Tag and well worth the money.

      Awesome L-1011 Planetag!

      This golden Planetag is truly impressive! A hunk of a tag. I purchased an L-1011 rack to go with it. The thin golden tag is also beautiful. One should consider that only 250 L-1011s were built, so these are rare. Yes, expensive, but worth every penny!

      A beautiful slab of aluminum and gold

      This tag is beautiful, and hefty! Of course, I don't plan on using it as a bag tag. This one's strictly a collectible. To answer Anthony L., the thick tags came from the window area, where the metal needs to be very thick.

      Way too heavy for a tag

      It’s way too heavy to be of any use. The substantial tag makes it useless to put it on your keychain or on your baggage. It could be use as a bathroom key at the a.m. p.m. mini mart is people to misplace the key I’m curious what part of playing this came from
