The remove before flight tags are used to lock certain parts of the aircraft when parked. They are normally fitted to safety pins or a mechanism to prevent accidental engaging or disengaging the system.
The RBF tags are removed by the maintenance crew, with the pilot checking all have been removed on the pre-flight check.
In the bag
Packed in the standard Eduard bag, backed with a cardboard insert, the Remove Before Flight tags are on one small fret.
The fret holds 23 long red tags, 17 slightly shorter yellow tags, and 6 square red tags.
The tags are pre-coloured both sides, with the writing in Hebrew on both sides.
They are well printed and the colour is equal throughout.
The one slight downside to these tags is maybe attaching them to the aircraft. Leaving a little of the fret sprue to the tag should give you a pin as such. Drilling a small hole in one end of the tag would also work, but care would need to be taken whilst doing it, to avoid scratching the paint.
No instructions are given to placement, but as every aircraft would have different locations its not surprising.
Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on Aeroscale.
Highs: Very useful and full colour.Lows: Attaching maybe.Verdict: A nice addition to any Israeli aircraft in a parked situation and will add interest.
