MotoArt has added a new helicopter to the fleet - the rugged and reliable Aérospatial SA 330J Puma. Introducing N6973C, formerly D-HAXJ, a Puma that served with the German Border Patrol for 31 years and in Afghanistan and Iraq with a US military contractor for another 10.
During the 1960’s, to meet a French Army requirement for an all-weather troop and cargo carrying helicopter, Sud Aviation developed several prototypes and pre-production models of this four-bladed, twin engined utility helicopter during the 1960s. The first production SA 330 Puma entered the skies in September 1968; deliveries to the French army began in 1969. It was a commercial success and continued to be produced by Aérospatiale, with licensed and unlicensed derivatives built in Romania and South Africa. The Puma has seen combat all over the world by many different armies and in several theaters, including the Gulf and Falklands Wars, as well as in civilian uses. Throughout most of the 1970s, the SA 330 Puma was Europe’s best selling transport helicopter.
*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 not have an 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.
