    Hello all, someone recently mentioned aircraft stamps, but I cannot find the thread, so I'm posting some here.
    While I'm in the UK I've been looking through my UK collection. I found these FDC's this morning and thought I'd share.

    I recently acquired this slightly older airmail envelope. Waiting to receive the full set of these stamps in a separate acquisition.

    Looked through what I have to find some non-Air Mail stamps with airplanes on them. Found a couple.

    Wouldn't it so much fun if we could simply hastag our collection and then find the ones we want quickly based on the theme being discussed... wishful thinking :)

    You probably can. Put a #airplanes in your post and then you should be able to search for #airplanes. Worth a try. I'll start hashtagging my posts by topic.

    Hello, James. This set (Lichtenstein) appeals to me. I don't collect the country but may purchase that set if not too pricey. I recall in the 1960s collecting Lichtenstein was a very hot topic!

    Hello Molokai, the Aircraft over Lichtenstein sets are available on EBay, They appear to be fetching about $30 for a used set and about $160 for MNH.
    Too rich for my pocket if I were buying today.
    I think my set came from a UK company called Broadway Approvals back in the 60's

    Thank you, James! I'll probably still bite for a mint set though I will shop around a little, first. Somehow they 'speak to me.' When the kids have beans for dinner for a week or two I will tell them it is your fault. ;)

    Hello all,
    these are from a 2014 purchase that I've just opened, at this moment I have five stamps from a set of seven. It is possible that I may find the other two when I've sorted through the other 1250 stamps in the next few days. Wish me luck.
