Even good enough for an air line CEO....this was a great experience and am proud to have such a place of honor....

The Honor Was All Mine

I had the distinct honor of producing this tail for a very special occasion.  Doug Hetzel was named "Captain for Life" by American Airlines for all his efforts to help others in his career as an American Airlines pilot.

Hawker 850 XP on Display

Here is a shot of a recently created Hawker tail that is on display.  It is a good example of the relation of a smaller 6" model in comparison to a mantle area.  For those that are married and want to keep the better half happy, this size works well.

America West Airbus A-320

This paint scheme really "popped" and will look amazing sitting in a place of prominence.  Look forward to getting the customer's reaction when they receive it.  The lower left area on the base is a design used for a pilot to place their personal wings.  This makes it a one of a kind!!!

Large 767ER Tail and Small MD-90 Tails

This is a good example of two different sizes that are available.  All tails are custom made allowing a wide variety of designs to be utilized.  Anything is possible....

Delta 767ER Tail Old Widget Paint Scheme

This is a 12" display that is in the Crew Outfitters store located on Lang Avenue by the ATL airport.  If you get in the neighborhood, check the store out.  There are several options viewable.

Continental Airlines 777

This is another example of a perfect present to commemorate the career of a professional pilot.  This 12" 777 tail was given as a Christmas present and received with warm smiles.  If you are looking for the best in gifts for an important occasion, Legacy Tails has a proven track record of winning results.

Continental Airlines 787

I was contacted by the wife of Captain Steve White, one of the first 787 pilots checked out on the aircraft for Continental Airlines.  It was a great gift waiting for him under the tree this Christmas.

TWA 727 Tail Christmas Present

In October, I was contacted by the son of a former TWA pilot, looking for a unique present for his father for Christmas.  After visiting for awhile, it was determined that a TWA 727 would best reflect his dad's time there.  He was know the "The Professor" due to his intimate knowledge of systems and procedures, and well as his time as an instructor on the aircraft.  His design was the first to implement a base area reserved for his personal set of TWA wings (depicted by the Delta F/O wings in the mockup).  It is a new design that is available as an option for those that wish to have a piece of their own history displayed as well.

L1049 TWA Connie Tail

This Fall, I had the pleasure of creating a special Christmas present for a client that was a fun project.  His wife ordered a "Connie" tail to commemorate the time spent at Ozark and later TWA.  It was the first time that she had purchased anything for him in recognition of his achievements and it was a pleasure to make this come together.

As you can see, it is a unique design that is "one-of-a-kind".  Any design is possible with a little imagination and I want each of you to have a piece that you are proud to display prominently.
