MotoArt’s L-1011 Tristar PlaneTags not only continue the legacy of these iconic aircraft, but also give the opportunity to own a piece of fuselage covered in authentic 23k gold leaf. Lockheed’s only commercial jet, our L-1011 spent its life with Arabic royalty.
Our plane was fit for kings from the start. It was built in 1983 as JY-HKJ and served as the private jet for the King of Jordan and the Jordanian Government. In late 2001, it was purchased by Al Anwa Aviation to fly Prince Abdul Aziz Al Ibrahim and was reregistered as HZ-AB1. The Prince, known as a globe-trotter in pursuit of pleasure, had the interior and exterior renovated, transforming the plane into a majestic, flying palace. AB1 was furnished with everything needed to provide the Prince and his guests with the comfort and extravagance they were accustomed to.
Flying aboard this Tristar was opulence among the clouds. The interior was lavishly decorated from top to bottom with sumptuous fabrics, fine wood cabinetry, gold-plated fixtures, and even gold seatbelts and ashtrays. AB1’s crowning glory, however, was the thick river of 23k gold which flowed from nose to tail of the plane – the type of finery expected by a Prince for his palace in the sky.

HZ-AB1 was withdrawn from use in 2013 and stored for the remainder of her years at Victorville. In 2021, MotoArt began the painstaking process of creating a lasting memento of this royal aircraft by preserving the 23k gold leaf found on these luxurious PlaneTags. This is the first time our tags are decorated with authentic gold. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own the thickest PlaneTag produced to date -the thick, all-gold PlaneTags are very limited in quantity.
