In 1989, Boeing worked together with the major airlines to design a twin-engine jet; the first airplane designed completely by computer. Representatives from the airlines, known as the “Working Together” group, each completed a 23 page questionnaire detailing what they and their passengers would like to see in the new design. One of ANA’s contributions was a suggestion for radial tires, which was incorporated into the final design.
The result was an aircraft that would become the biggest two-engine jet ever to soar. Its basic design included capacity for up to 325 passengers in a cabin similar to the 747, configurable interior areas, a glass cockpit, fly-by-wire control system and 10% better seat/mile costs. The Triple 7 is celebrated as the most produced Boeing wide-body jet ever – and one of the safest and most successful aircraft in aviation history.
Our JA8968 was delivered to All Nippon Airways in August 1996. She served exclusively with ANA for 21 years before she was withdrawn from use on February 10, 2017 and stored at Victorville Airport (VCV) February 22, 2017. She was part of an ANA fleet of 28 777-200s, used for both domestic and international flights. The 777-200 was well regarded for its business class seating, while today’s ANA 777-300 ER offers an exceptional business class experience with “The Room”. The Room is considered the “gold standard” of business class flight, with the largest seats in the industry and impressive business class cabin size.
“We offered an ANA 777 PlaneTag from JA8199 and it sold out very quickly,” said MotoArt owner Dave Hall. “When we found out that JA8968 was available we jumped at the chance to get this plane and offer it as a PlaneTag.”
Our newest PlaneTags are numbered to 5,000. They are available in dark blue, light blue, gray, white, and combos. “Our combo PlaneTags are sought after by collectors and are always the first to go,” says Hall. “Grab one for your collection before they are gone.”
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 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 have a limitied 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.
