These Titan II PlaneTags are made from the skin of a Titan II missile, specifically from the spacer section used to make the Reentry Vehicle (where the W-53 warhead was carried) to the Stage II airframe. The material used is 2014-T6 aluminum, an alloy of aluminum and copper that was formulated specifically for the Titan II and not found anywhere else. The slightly golden color is the result of Iridite, a chromium chemical conversion process applied to the airframe to prevent corrosion.
Pima Air & Space Museum / Arizona Aerospace Foundationgenerously donated the Titan II materials. The materials had been at the museum for decades, most likely taken from various launch sites during decommissioning or to be used as spare parts.
MotoArt is proud to partner with the Titan Missile Museum, a sister museum to Pima Air & Space Museum, in offering a very limited run of 700. Titan II PlaneTags can be purchased while visiting this incredible museum or here on own page. The Titan Missile Museum, located in a former missile silo, is dedicated to preserving. the memory of this part of Cold War history and educating visitors.
Handmade Aviation Tags
- Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
- Unique - 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.
- Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card. Collect them all!
- Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display
