For 15 years this 747-300 was the queen of skies for the Brazilian airline Varig as one of their flagship aircraft. She retired in the Mojave desert last being operated by Southern Air. In 2015 the retired airframe was purchased by Big Imagination and is being designed into an art vehicle for Burning Man. Part of the aircraft has already been an art installation at Black Rock City in 2016, and BIG is logistically preparing to transport the second half.Cut and engraved directly from the skin of a historic Boeing 747 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.
