This B-52 Stratofortress PlaneTag is made from the tail section of this long ranged jet-powered strategic bomber. Originally designed to carry nuclear weapons during the cold war it has proved it is versatile and ageless. From 1952 to 1962 there were 744 units produced. Rebuilt and upgraded, the B-52 has served proudly for 64 years and still plays a major role in our country’s defense. Affectionately called "BUFF" by its aircrews which stands for Big Ugly Fat Fuc*&r.

This B-52 PlaneTag came from tail # 53-394 which was better known as Lucky Lady III.  As lead Stratofortress of Operation Power Flite, the USAF Strategic Air Command's eight-engine jet bomber departed California's Castle Air Force Base in January of 1957, becoming the first jet engine to circle the globe nonstop via in-flight refueling.  This momentous 24,325 mile trip was completed in 45 hours, 19 minutes after landing at March Air Force Base in Riverside, CA.  The flight around the globe won not only the 1957 Mackay Trophy, but also landed Lucky Lade III on the prized cover of Life Magazine.

Later renamed "City of El Paso", this B-52 was retired to the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Saved from the scrap heap by Walter Soplata in 1984, the PlaneTags team pulled her out of his forest collection, saving the aircraft for historical preservation and bringing to you as limited edition PlaneTags. Claim a piece of Lucky Lady III for your collection before she's gone.

NOTE: 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.
