Genuine Boeing 767 PlaneTag - From the Gimli Glider

Snag some luck right out of the skies with this historic Boeing 767 PlaneTag!

This PlaneTag was from the THE historic Gimli Glider. The Gimli Glider is the nickname for Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767–233, that was the only commercial jetliner to run out of fuel at 41,000 feet and safely glide back down with everyone on board surviving.

On July 23, 1983 Flight 143 was halfway through its flight from Montreal to Edmonton when it ran out of fuel and made a safe emergency landing at Gimli Airport in Gimli, Manitoba Canada.  Captain Robert (Bob) Pearson and crew avoided major catastrophe, managing to glide the aircraft safely through the air to make an unheard of emergency landing at Gimli.

  • Your B767 Tag was made from the skin of Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767–233, with tail number C-GAUN (the Gimli Glider)
  • Limited edition tag with only 10,000 copies made
  • Each tag is individually numbered
  • Includes an attractive and strong metal loop to keep it attached
  • Back side provides space to write your name, address, and phone number
  • Can be used as a luggage tag, key ring or decorative accessory

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.

SAFETY NOTICE: 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.

by CurlyGirl from Lawn Guy Land, NY USA 

Pros: Historic, sturdy, numbered
Cons: None
Review: Given as a gift to my engineer BF whose interests include aviation history, especially analyzing air disasters (I *said* he was an engineer, didn't I?). This gift made his eyes pop. And if it didn't, this item is so cool, I would have kept it myself! :)

A piece of history
by A Customer from Beecroft NSW Australia 

Pros: Great memento for a passionate pilot
Cons: Easily scratched.
Review: A perfect present for my 767-mad pilot son. Great back story with the Gimli Glider. I don't think he'll use it as a luggage tag - too precious - but will use it as a lucky charm as he pursues a career with a major airline.

interesting product
by Jeff from London ON Canada 

Pros: exactly what I expected
Cons: address and information spaces on back of tag (possible use as a baggage tag). Personally I think this is a collectors item and not something I would put on the handle of my baggage, A piece of cheap paper in a clear sleeve would be better for that.
Review: Very interesting item. Great piece of history from an aircraft that as a result of the fuel incident makes it an extra special part of any aviation collection.
