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.

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.

    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.

    Probably the fastest delivery ever!

    Fantastic service from planetags.com! I’m not sure if it was because I ordered 2 pieces of SR-71, but I have to say, it only took 3 days from ordering to receiving them safely across continents, from California to the U.K. (I guess it was sort of Mach 3+ style). I was quite amazed at how quickly planetags.com dispatched these gems and how secure the dispatch was. Many thanks for a great service. Really appreciated!

    I want to love this but...

    I can’t get past the rust. I joined the waitlist and bought this as soon as I got the notification this tag was available. I can understand these skins aren’t going to be perfect and have lots of wear from aircraft service, but for the price I paid for this I am disappointed that I got a rusty tag. And it’s not just small bits of rust, parts of the front and the whole back side is rust. Shipping was fast and I am happy to have a piece of the legendary SR71 Blackbird. My favorite aircraft.

    All the tags have been delivered, finally. Covid19 restrictions have made me wait long.

    SR71 great even if the Tag has imperfections and the laser engraving isn't very clear I am very happy I have it; unless you have access to NASA's spare parts hangar this tag series should be the only one ever made. And we all know what the SR71 and CIA's A12 achieved. Absolutely amazing. B52: perfect piece. The lack of a tail number or a serial means the tags are made by parts from several planes, I think. Titan II: the tag has a scratch but it clearly preexisted the engraving and skins cannot be perfect, I am happy. B1B: the Item is well made, and you know this aircraft was the first one sent in service. P40: the tag shows the signs of time, aging, some corrosion, is not made with the skin of the mentioned serial, but has a well deserved place in my tiny collection. I have purchased other tags, i am satisfied with all of them. Thank you.

    Never thought of owning a piece of legend

    Loved SR-71 since I was a kid. Loved its elegant curves, and unparalleled performance . Never ever thought I could have a piece of the fastest manned aircraft (don’t tell me about the flying rocket X-15, lol) Thank you guys at Motoart!
