HU-16 Albatross Plane Tag
Taking its first flight in 1949, the amphibious Grumman Albatross saved lives as a combat search and rescue craft. Cut and engraved directly from the skin of a historic Grumman HU-18 Albatross decommissioned airplane, this limited edition, one-of-a-kind Plane Tag has been resurrected from its time in the clouds to live on as a versatile and practical memento. Over 100 years after humankind’s mechanical marvels conquered the skies, you too can hold a token of the immense feat of aviation in the palm of your hand.
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.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains original chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
