MotoArt’s L-1011 Tristar PlaneTags not only continue the legacy of these iconic aircraft, but also give the opportunity to own a piece of fuselage covered in authentic 23k gold leaf. Lockheed’s only commercial jet, our L-1011 spent its life with Arabic royalty.
Our plane was fit for kings from the start. It was built in 1983 as JY-HKJ and served as the private jet for the King of Jordan and the Jordanian Government. In late 2001, it was purchased by Al Anwa Aviation to fly Prince Abdul Aziz Al Ibrahim and was reregistered as HZ-AB1. The Prince, known as a globe-trotter in pursuit of pleasure, had the interior and exterior renovated, transforming the plane into a majestic, flying palace. AB1 was furnished with everything needed to provide the Prince and his guests with the comfort and extravagance they were accustomed to.
OUR PLANE'S STORY
Flying aboard this Tristar was opulence among the clouds. The interior was lavishly decorated from top to bottom with sumptuous fabrics, fine wood cabinetry, gold-plated fixtures, and even gold seatbelts and ashtrays. AB1’s crowning glory, however, was the thick river of 23k gold which flowed from nose to tail of the plane – the type of finery expected by a Prince for his palace in the sky.
HZ-AB1 was withdrawn from use in 2013 and stored for the remainder of her years at Victorville. In 2021, MotoArt began the painstaking process of creating a lasting memento of this royal aircraft by preserving the 23k gold leaf found on these luxurious PlaneTags. This is the first time our tags are decorated with authentic gold. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own the thickest PlaneTag produced to date -the thick, all-gold PlaneTags are very limited in quantity. Add a stunning 23k gold L-1011-500 PlaneTag to your collection today!
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
