MotoArt introduces the first Boeing 707 PlaneTags to join our Boeing family of aircraft in the PlaneTags collection. Our newest PlaneTags are made from a 707-330 built in 1965 that was delivered to Lufthansa Airlines as D-ABUF before starting its second, more distinguished life as N88ZL. As a Lowa Limited charter jet, 8ZL carried some of the biggest names in music, foreign dignitaries, and other famous persons.
The 707, Boeing’s first jetliner, is a long-range, narrow-body aircraft that first flew in 1957 and was instrumental in ushering in a new age of passenger air travel. The first of a widely successful and prolific family of aircraft, the Boeing 707 dominated passenger transport during the 1960s and well into the 1970s.
TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT
After beginning its next career as a private charter jet in 1984 with Miami-based Lowa Limited, N88ZL offered a new type of travel for its more exclusive passengers. Now set up with an executive cabin configuration, 8ZL ferried VIP's like musicians, performers, former presidents, and other dignitaries in style and comfort all over the world, including US Former President Bill Clinton, Playboy editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner and his Girls Next Door, Fleetwood Mac, the Bee Gees, Pearl Jam, Bryan Adams, Beyoncé, and served as a tour plane for The Eagles and Bon Jovi.
LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER
On January 21, 2006, with rockers Bon Jovi on board, N88ZL skidded off the runway at Hamilton International Airport in Ontario, Canada. The plane had 14 passengers and crew on board and was arriving from their previous tour stop in Buffalo, New York for three more shows in Canada. No one was severely hurt and the tour went on.
