Product Summary

MotoArt was able to preserve portions of the original aircraft skin and is honored to be able to offer a very limited run of 2,000 Boeing Vertol UH-46D Sea Knight PlaneTags. The weathered patina tells the tale of one tough, unrelenting helicopter

For half a century the Boeing Vertol UH-46D Sea Knight served the U.S. Armed Forces as a dependable, rugged workhorse. The first Sea Knight was delivered to the Marines in 1964 and shortly after began its military service during the Vietnam War.

This assault transport helicopter would deliver troops, supplies, and equipment regardless of the time of day, weather conditions, or type of danger it would be flying into.

During the Vietnam War, the UH-46’s were used to carry troops and cargo to and from Navy ships that were in the China Sea. By 1968 the “Phrog”, as it was affectionately known, had flown 75,000 hours on 180,000 missions, and had carried half a million troops. 8,700 of those missions included rescuing wounded service members. Called the “mailman, supplier and guardian angel to the Navy fleet”, UH-46’s were used for sea and ground rescues, vertical replenishment, mail delivery, transporting personnel, and many other duties. The Sea Knight was used in every major Marine conflict from Vietnam until its retirement in 2015.

OUR PLANE'S STORY

Our Sea Knight, tail number 152491, was built in 1966 as a UH-46A, and later converted to a UH-46D. During her storied lifetime, ‘2491’ served with Navy Helicopter Combat Support Squadrons 5, 7, and 11, as a ground trainer at the Naval Air Technical Training Center Memphis, and was struck off charge in 2003. In 2004 Columbia Helicopters obtained ‘2491’ for parts, and in 2017 it began a new career with Scroggins Aviation Mockup & Effects as a movie prop. Read all about this amazing helicopter on our PlaneTags blog.

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
