United Airlines N198UA last flew in March of 2009. Many of the jet's major components, including avionics and engines, were salvaged and used on the World's largest aircraft - Stratolaunch. Stratolaunch (Scaled Composites Model 351) was designed to carry rockets that would be air-launched into orbit. We were commissioned to make a desk out of fuselage from this iconic jet and have put the remaining windows to excellent use with our limited edition Stratolaunch tags. Our Stratolaunch tag is limited to only 250 pieces.
Every Jet-Eye tag is laser cut from real aircraft windows. Our tags are 100% sourced by us and are laser cut and printed in house, featuring custom artwork. All Jet-Eyes are printed in full color on the front and left clear on the back to showcase the original finish.
All of our tags are available in inner or outer window tags. The stock photo is of an inner window tag. The inner windows are approximately .20-.24" thick and the outer windows are nearly .5" thick and many have a beveled edge. The outer window tags require significantly more processing after cutting and cost more as a result. The outer windows were the part of the window that acutally was the outermost window pane and made contact with the air/wind in flight. Please keep in mind that the outer windows show various amounts of wear from being exposed to the elements in flight as well as being stored outside in desert boneyards!
This is a pre-order tag. Pre-orders will begin shipping in late April.
