This Planetag is cut from a Boeing CH-47 Chinook that was first delivered to the United States Army in September 1968 as a C model serial #68-15814. In 1991 it was then converted to a D model and issued a new serial #91-00234 and assigned to the Army Nation Guard in Stockton, California under "Delta Schooners". On February 11th, 1998 this was involved in a mid-air collision with a civilian light aircraft.
This American twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter, developed by American rotor-craft Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Vertol (later known as Boeing Rotorcraft Systems), is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters (capable of lifting up to 50k pounds) - as well as one of the fastest. -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.
-Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
