When MotoArt owner Dave Hall discovered our “El Ten Eleven” he knew he had to have it for the PlaneTags collection. “The L-1011 was such a great plane with such an amazing appreciation for it,” says Hall. “We’re always asked if we can offer L-1011 PlaneTags. What makes this one extra special is that it’s Hawaiian Airlines. Their history and the beauty of their logo and livery make this one of our favorites.”
Introduced first as Inter-Island Airways in 1929 with a fleet of only two 8-seater Sikorsky S-38s and a Bellanca monoplane, Hawaiian Airlines® slowly grew from island transport to Transpacific operations, flying from Oakland to Honolulu in a record setting 13 hours, 54 minutes in 1941. The Lockheed L-1011 TriStar, known affectionately as “El Ten Eleven”, joined the Hawaiian fleet in 1985, opening up service to West Coast gateway cities and putting the airline in direct competition with the major US carriers for the first time in its history.
The iconic Hawaiian Airlines logo and livery have also evolved over the years. The Iiwi bird was added in 1952, later replaced with the jetbird. In 1973, Pualani, Flower of the Sky, was unveiled to celebrate the airline’s change to an all jet airline, becoming one of the first female icons on the tail of a commercial plane. Updates to Pualani in 2001 and 2017 have featured her more prominently and added touches to show the hibiscus and wind in her hair. Over the years, she has become a beloved symbol of the aloha spirit and a gracious island welcome, underscoring the commitment to providing hospitable, premium service.
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.
Caution: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth
