Sikorsky H-34 Seabat - USN# 140121
This PlaneTag is carved and engraved from the Sikorsky HSS-1/SH-34G Seabat helicopter (manufacturer serial #58-165). It entered in the United States Navy service as 140121 in December 1955 as one of the 215 Anti-Submarine models and were re-designated UH-34G in 1962.
With its distinctive hump, the Sikorsky H-34 is one of the most recognizable helicopters in history. Originally serving as medium transport with the armed forces of 25 countries across every continent, this helicopter was brought to prominence during wars in Algeria and Southeast Asia.
From patrolling the horizon equipped for anti-submarine warfare, gunship roles, to troop evacuation and transport, search and rescue, cargo hauling, commercial airline shuttling, recovering space capsules, and even carrying presidents, the H-34 made its mark in both the military and civilian world - and has defined the role of helicopters ever since.
Please Note: Colors Of Tag Vary
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from real retired aircraft fuselage and are not merely stamped any 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. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags.
As a result, you will have a limited 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 the mouth.
