SR 71 Blackbird

The SR-71™ Blackbird, designed by Lockheed’s famed Skunk Works development team, was a long-range, strategic reconnaissance aircraft used by the United States Air Force from 1964 through the 1980s. Its radically innovative design and capabilities made this plane a vital part of intelligence gathering for decades, helping the United States craft its foreign policy at a crucial time in history. It remains to this day the fastest manned, air-breathing aircraft ever built. We are thrilled and honored to offer an exclusive, limited edition SR-71™ PlaneTag made from the original stabilizer of Tail #17967.

What is SR-71 PlaneTags Made Of?

Each PlaneTag® has been cut from the interior or exterior composite honeycomb sandwich skin panels from the stabilizer, then polished and etched with the plane information and its number from the limited edition run. No two tags will be exactly alike, making this a truly unique aviation keepsake.

Important Info

- Please Note: Colors Of Tag Vary, Promo Codes Not Valid On SR-71 Tags

Handmade Aviation Collectible

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 have a limited 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.

    The Incredible Blackbird

    This is an extremely beautiful tag created from the skin of the legendary SR-71. Just knowing the extreme conditions this price endured during active service is just mind blowing and I’m thrilled to have it in my collection. A rare beauty with unique patterns and marks; each with a story of their own.

    A unique opportunity!

    Hard to explain this. If you’re looking at this somehow with the opportunity to complete the purchase, trust that you won’t regret it. This is a piece of our human scientific history — regardless of its military or political purpose, this object showed in part that humanity can push past its limitations once more, and come together to do the amazing, the impossible. A cherished centerpiece of my collection.

    Nothing else like it

    A well made, hand crafted piece of unique aviation history. Knowing what we know about the SR-71, if only these tags could talk. One of the coolest things I own.

    Awesome piece of history!

    I hesitated purchasing the SR-71 in the previous two rounds and regretted it. I ended up buying a medium tag this time around and do not regret it. It has decent thickness to it, some neat material between the metal and shows some wear. It is one of my few tags I will never part with.

    My #1 PlaneTag

    I received a very thick exterior tag and I have zero regrets about this purchase. It's hard to read the engraving unless at a certain angle but that's ok.

    Ultimate piece of history

    It was really expensive piece but it was the best spend money into PlaneTag. It’s definitelly best of the best. Totally different than any other painted piece of metal. I love all of my tags but this one is really unique. It’s amazing.

    Best Gift Ever!!

    Bought as a gift for a plane enthusiast and an SR-71 blackbird fan. He hadn't bought it for himself the last time there was a release because of cost. As we all know those are the things that make the best gifts. He was beyond thrilled with the gift. There was no rust on the one I received, we wouldn't have cared though. The number of flight hours on the back was awesome. Would buy again any day of the week.

    SR-71 brilliance

    I received the tag in Regional Australia quicker than expected. A truely unique and high quality item. It was a “must have” after seeing several ‘71s in museums. Mine was very thin with good laser engraving. No regrets.

    I love PlaneTags

    I've been waiting a while for them to re-release the SR-71 and I wasn't disappointed, its beautiful. I now have 27 tags and they are all special to me.

    And It's Spectacular!

    Fabulous piece! You all have done a great job of preserving and sharing this legendary creation. Great service as well as I received this very quickly (kudos to DHL also in that regard). Thank you again!

    SR71 Plane Tag

    The graphics on the advertised tags looks amazing but the variations on the ones I received make the graphics practically unreadable. I give a two rating because after all it's a piece from an SR71. But I give it a one rating because the tags I actually received look nothing like what was advertised. Overall very disappointed in light of the $350 per tag price.

    Owning a bit of Aviation History

    I really love this plane tag!! I debated about getting it the few times it has shown up back in stock and it was always too late when I decided to go for it. So when it came back up again I got it and I am so glad that I have. I have a few plane tags and it is really cool to feel the difference the titanium skin feels compared to the other planes I purchased. This is a must for any aviation geek!

    I missed the first batch of these and with ecstatic when they came back in stock. The SR-71 means a lot to me because my grandpa loved it and I remember as a kid seeing them in a field down south. I decided to frame it but take the glass out so I can still touch it when I walk by.

    Big numbers and small piece of history

    In excess of Mach 3.0, cruises at over 65,000 feet and out runs missiles, each SR-71 tag is part of that story. I would never have imagined owning a piece of such a legendary aircraft and thanks to Dave and the Motoart crew for making it possible. A truly unique and coveted piece of any collection.
