    Yes, I agree. Many stamp designers/artists take a lot of liberties. Stylized or composite aircraft on stamps abound. In this case, I don't have a good photo of either design.

    In 1936,France issued a 50franc airmail stamp showing a plane flying over Paris.This is a very attractive stamp and has a high catalogue value.
    In 1945,Edouard Berck ,a French philatelic dealer who also published catalogues,designed a vignette to commemorate the earlier stamp. France airmail 15.jpg 996_001.jpg

    Interesting. Is the copy known as the Berck cinderella in French collecting circles? Did he use it on his outgoing mail? Is it readily available for collectors?

    Don...
    This cinderella stamp is not that hard to find on either Delcampe or Ebay.Prices on Ebay France seem to go from 10 Euros to 60 Euros...

    The Commemorative Air Force is asking me for money again and, courteously, they include postage for my response. They use stamps printed by stamps.com with images of aircraft they have restored or want to restore. This one features a North American B-25 Mitchell, a widely used twin-engine light bomber of the WW II period. This particular B-25 named Semper Fi, carries the Navy (Marine Corps in this case) designation PBJ. The downside of these stamps is the CAF always paper clips them to the donation form and it leaves an indentation on the stamp. Takes a while to press that out!

    Another two or three of the CAF's stamps and I'll be able to draw up a page of them.

    The Curtiss Jenny (JN-4) is one of the airplanes most frequently seen on U.S. stamps. Here are the U.S. Jenny stamps from 1918 up to the reprint of the upside down Jenny, 2013.

    I was looking at Delcampe today and came across the following stamps which caught my attention.To be honest,I had never even seen or heard about this territory.They are from Fezzan, a part of Libya which was under French administration from 1943 until 1951. Fezzan.jpg

    A cinderella stamp from France,commemorating the 1930 Paris Exposition.
    I have no idea if it depicts an actual plane or if it is a figment of the artist,s imagination. airmail cinderella.jpg

    Not much detail in the aircraft drawing -- maybe a CAM 33 or Latham 45. Nice art deco stamp, though. Interesting that it is labeled "Poste Aerienne."

    I was reading my online version of Linns this morning and I saw the announcement of new issues to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force with links to the postal home pages of the Isle of Man, Guernsey, and Jersey. There, undoubtedly, will many other issues for this anniversary, probably enough to form a sizable Aircraft on Stamps collection. Here are the images of the stamps issued, or to be issued, by the postal authorities mentioned above. The photos are from the respective issuing authorities' home pages.

    This year, 2018, is the 100th anniversary of U.S. air mail and the USPO is issuing two stamps in commemoration. Same design, different colors. The first, I believe, will appear on May 1, 2018. Not great designs, reminiscent of classic engraved stamps, but certainly better than photographic art work, in my opinion.
