    Werner:

    A very early stamp depicting an aircraft, perhaps the second postage stamp with an aircraft in the design. I too, have one in my Aircraft on Stamps collection. The earliest postage showing an aircraft, I believe, is the U.S. 20c parcel post stamp issued in 1912 featuring a Wright Flyer. I am surprised that the Austrian postal authorities did not choose Igo Etrich's Taube for a stamp. It was an earlier and more widely known design flying in several countries before and in WW I. Here's a picture of a Taube on a 1978 postage stamp from Germany (Berlin), along with a top-view photo of a Taube. It was very bird-like in its design.

    You are,of course right,Don !

    Not the best specimen,but the only I have.
    I did not think of that stamp,but had a stamp of
    Cuba in mind,as the earliast one.
    The Lohner Pfeil was chosen by Austria in 1915,
    because it was used as a bomber.The series (Mi.180-4) was a war-charity issue.
    The bombs were dropped by hand.The plane was
    used before,I think in 1913, by Spain in Morocco to bomb rebells.
    My today stamp,again from Austria,Mi.1041,issued
    March 27th,1958 is a true civilian plane,Vickers
    Vicount.

    I'm not sure which I prefer the Sepia (yellow-brown) or the multi-colour version.

    Regards, James.

    Hello all, this is a poem translated from Gray's 'Luna Habitabilis' Cambridge 1797.
    Written some 140+ years before the Battle of Britain and 106 years before the invention of powered aircraft.

    "The time will come, when thou shalt lift thine eyes,
    To watch a long drawn battle in the skies,
    While aged peasants, too amazed for words,
    Stare at the flying fleets of wond'rous birds,
    England so long the mistress of the sea,
    Where winds and waves confess her sovereignty,
    Her ancient triumph yet on high shall bear,
    And reign, the sovereign of the conquered air."

    Issued 2003-08-12 for the hundredth anniversary of powered flight.

    Regards, James.

    The battle of Britain was the most impressive, sucessfull air defense campain against odds in the military history. Pilots of many nations had their part in this and too many young lives were sacrified...
    Truly Epic.

    Amazingly prophetic! I once corresponded with a man who was a boy during the Battle for Britain and he remarked that one of his most vivid memories was watching, almost daily, the air battles that were going on overhead. We in the United States, fortunately, were spared the closeness of the war that those in Europe, northern Africa, and Asia experienced in their homelands.

    Pilots from many nations, from the Commonwealth nations, Polish, Dutch and others. We owe them a lot for their sacrifices. During my childhood I met some of the Polish pilots who stayed after the war.

    The 2 shillings stamp shows another Igo Etrich design. It may be a rendering of the Taube Sport model which carried two people. The Stanley Gibbons catalog Collect Aircraft on Stamps identifies it only as an Etrich Limousine, which I don't think is correct, but the aircraft is not included in the more comprehensive aircraft manufactures encyclopedias. It was probably a "one off" design. I do not know of any other images of it on stamps.
