SR-71 Blackbird Now Available as a Limited Edition MotoArt PlaneTag

Press Release ( - TORRANCE, Calif. - Apr 10, 2019 - ​​​​​​​​MotoArt announced a new, one-of-a-kind PlaneTag made from a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The SR-71 was developed by Lockheed’s famed Skunk Works development team for the United States Air Force, during the midst of the turbulent Cold War era. The work in developing this high-speed, high-altitude reconnaissance plane led to new technologies in titanium fabrication, radar stealth and electronic countermeasures, among many other innovations, some of which are still used today. There were only 32 made, 12 of which were lost in accidents, making it a rare find. The PlaneTags are made from the original stabilizer of S/N 17967, which was replaced before the plane was delivered to Barksdale Global Power Museum at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana.

The stabilizer was disassembled then upcycled into pocket-sized PlaneTags. They are made from the composite skin of the wing stabilizer. “We are ecstatic to offer this truly, one-of-a-kind piece of history,” said owner Dave Hall. The team was able to produce 2,250 tags, which they will begin offering on April 18, 2019, with the blessing of Lockheed Martin. Each SR-71 PlaneTag is numbered and unique, with varying shades, textures and imperfections. “Keepsakes from this incredible plane have never been available for anyone to own. They’re going to sell out immediately,” said Hall. “We want anyone who loves the SR-71 like we do to get a chance to own a piece of it.” The company is encouraging customers to sign up at to be notified of a pre-sale opportunity to purchase a PlaneTag before they go on sale.
