Introduced first as Inter-Island Airways in 1929 with a fleet of only two 8-seater Sikorsky S-38s and a Bellanca monoplane, Hawaiian Airlines® slowly grew from island transport to Transpacific operations, flying from Oakland to Honolulu in a record setting 13 hours, 54 minutes in 1941. The Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, known affectionately as “El Ten Eleven”, joined the Hawaiian fleet in 1985, opening up service to West Coast gateway cities and putting the airline in direct competition with the major US carriers for the first time in its history.
The iconic Hawaiian Airlines logo and livery have also evolved over the years. The Iiwi bird was added in 1952, later replaced with the jetbird. In 1973, Pualani, Flower of the Sky, was unveiled to celebrate the airline’s change to an all jet airline, becoming one of the first female icons on the tail of a commercial plane. Updates to Pualani in 2001 and 2017 have featured her more prominently and added touches to show the hibiscus and wind in her hair. Over the years, she has become a beloved symbol of the aloha spirit and a gracious island welcome, underscoring the commitment to providing hospitable, premium service.

*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.
Not the quality I was expecting. Bubbles in coating. Scratches in Gold.
My dad always loved the L1011 and he absolutely loved this gift.
Great looking Tags from a fine airplane. Too bad there's only one single L-1011 still flying worldwide. Can only recommend these Tags!
Very good. Nice product, own a piece of history.
Lovely! I have the old ones with the airline plus the later ones without.
Still my favorite tag. Liked it so much I bought it in red for my big bro. Great colors! Too beautiful to hang it on a hook, must have on the keychain for all to see.
Five star product, five star seller.
Great item! My son collects these and loves this latest addition to his collection!
JALの777を6つ、今回はハワイアンのL-1011とアエロフロート（ガルーダ退役機）のMD-11を買い求めました。 大好きな3発機のDC-10があればうれしいですね。 Daveさんにはいつも親切にしてもらっています。 これからも素敵な商品を発表して下さいね。 日本から応援しています。
Great quality, great piece of history.
The combination of the color and history of this tag, makes it truly one of a kind.

Very great pink color from an iconic jet! Beautiful blue/gray backing!

Hi here, At this point I can't comment as I have not received them yet. According to the latest tracking they are still in Chicago
I love this tag, I have had only good experiences with the company and highly recommend this product.
I have worked out at MHV, and really enjoy having Planetags from the Aloha Fun Bird, Hawaiian L-1011, and the Eastern DC-9. I also purchased a couple of Planetags from N665WN. I grew up flying on SWA 737-300s, and enjoy having Planetags from an aircraft that I remember. Thank you!
