    It is has been awhile since I posted anything here, so, continuing with my British Commonwealth/Colony countries, here are my only pages of aircraft stamps from Gibraltar. This is the long series from 1982, Sc. 416 -430 depicting commercial aircraft. There are a few others from Gibraltar, but I have never sought them out.

    Here are three pages from my Aircraft on Stamps collection featuring aircraft on Grenada's stamps. The first page depicts a couple of general aviation light twin airplanes, the Piper Apache and Beechcraft Twin Bonanza, neither of which are frequently seen on stamps. The third page is a philatelic souvenir I purchased on our first trip to Okinawa to visit our daughter and her husband. Of the stamps on the s/s, the Douglas TDB-1 "Devastator," is an unusual selection for depiction on a stamp. It was a design dating back to 1933 lightly armed and highly susceptible to enemy fire. Devastators suffered heavy losses at the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway. They were withdrawn from combat service after the Battle of Midway.

    It has been awhile since I posted to this thread, so here is a continuation from my Aircraft on British Commonwealth stamps with five pages of Indian stamps:

    Continuing alphabetically, two pages of Aircraft on Stamps from Kiribati. Of special interest, at least to me, are the stamps depicting the Curtiss Seamew (misidentified on the stamp as a Curtiss Seagull, and by me in my labeling on the page. The Seagull was a biplane.) and the Northrop P-61 "Black Widow." Neither appear frequently on aircraft stamps of the world. The Seamew was a two-seat, scout/observation, 1942 design. The U.S. Navy ordered 800 Seamews, but they were withdrawn from active service in 1944. The P-61 was designed specifically as a night fighter for the USAAF. It entered service in 1943 with 691 being built.
