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.
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HZ-AB1 was withdrawn from use in 2013 and stored for the remainder of her years at Victorville.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 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.
Retaining ring broke when unpacked - allowed tag to fall onto the floor damaging it which is a shame because it is a fantastic memento! I have other tags and think the quality and presentation is usually first class from Planetags!
Being a retired Lockheed Martin employee, I've been collecting all the Lockheed Plane Tags I can find. I purchased the "thick" version of this gold tag and it is absolutely stunning.
It's great to have a piece of such a special plane
I bought the tag for one of my employees. He and I both worked the jet when it was the king of Jordan’s; although, he was on it when it was built and I later duty a refurbishment. That was the program he met his wife on. It was incredible that I was able to give him a piece of history. Like this.
Amazing tag. As usual the printing was spot on, and the finish as well. The best way to bring home a gem that brings back memories and great times
I purchased the thick tag and was not disappointed. The tag is very thick, second only to the NASA launch pad tags. It is thick and a beautiful, resplendent gold color. It shines wonderfully in light and will not disappoint you if you purchase one. I recommend picking one up before they disappear as there are not any other tags like it!
Great nice piece of aviation and King of Jordan Thank you
I love it! Same great quality as all the other tags. Great job Dave!
This tag is beautiful, The condition of the gold leaf is amazing. This is easily one of my top 5 favorite tags!
10/10, an excellent item from a glorious aircraft.
Love these tags especially the L-1011 my favorite plane. One thing I recommend, if using them as luggage tags, is to melt some solder into the connector to prevent them from being stolen by airline baggage handlers. I’ve lost two of my L-1011 tags
I love it very much
Thrilled to have Lockheed's only civilian jet airliner to add to my collection. The PlaneTag is beautiful!
Lovely tag. L-1011 was always one of my favorites to ride (though I was a TWA family, would have been neat to have one of that livery). But really happy and proud to own a small piece of my favorite airplane…
The thin solid gold is absolutely marvellous. A definite must-have for L-1011 lovers!
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.
Really great Tag! Nice color, perfekt quality!
As usual, Planetag did not disappoint. In fact, Planetag has not disappoint with all my purchases.
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 !
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.
