MotoArt’s newest aircraft in the PlaneTags fleet is a Douglas C-54 Skymaster. Tracing its roots has been a wild ride, but one thing is certain - this Skymaster has one heck of a story to tell! Meet Tanker #109.
The Douglas C-54 is a four-engined, piston-powered plane, derived from the DC-4, and produced during World War II. It was a workhorse transport for the USAAF and the US Navy, ferrying cargo and troops - even dignitaries including President Franklin Roosevelt - under the call sign Sacred Cow. The Skymaster played a major role during the Berlin Airlift in 1948 when every available USAF C-54 was put into service along with other Allied aircraft, delivering food, fuel, and other goods - to the sum of 2.3 million tons of cargo in just over a year.
Handmade Aviation Tags
- Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
- Unique - each PlaneTag bears the colour, 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.
- Collectable - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card. Collect them all!
- Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display
*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 colour, 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 colour 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.
