The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk fighter/ground-attack aircraft was one of WWII’s most famous fighters.

Handmade Aviation Tags

PlaneTags™ are authentic, made from actual retired aircraft skin, not merely stamped metal. 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. Each Tag is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card. Collect them all! Versatile, Tags come with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display. Variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag. As a result, you will not have an option to select the exact color. 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.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk fighter/ground-attack aircraft was one of WWII’s most famous fighters. The P-40 was easier to build and maintain than the other fighters at the time and was in large-scale production such that nearly 14,000 were built by 1944, making it one of the most produced American fighters. It remained on the frontline until the war’s end. Known for its fierce “shark teeth” nose art and its versatility, it was used by most Allied countries. The famous Flying Tigers flew the P-40s in the Pacific theater and achieved notable success defending China and attacking Japan, helping to turn the tide for the Allies.

The P-40 used to make this PlaneTag survived a wheels-up landing and Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. It later crashed during a patrol mission over Oahu and remained there until it was rediscovered in 1985. It is currently being restored. Additional material was provided by Pima Air & Space Museum, taken from re-skinning P-40 wings during restorations.
