    I guess the "best offer
    I guess,the "best offer" will be considerably
    lower,than the asked $ 900.- !
    Your stamps will be in the range between $ 1.-
    to $ 2.-.But they are good looking stamps
    and it is nice to own them.

    Hello Werner, I thought mine were worth possibly $5 for the set, I think I paid about £1 wayback.
    How can they ask $900 for a proof set? apart from having holes punched in them is there any evidence to suggest that the are anything other than cut squares imperf set?

    James.

    Two of the greatest pioneers of pre-powered flight, Sir George Cayley
    (27 December 1773 – 15 December 1857) who's first model glider was flown in 1804. In 1849 Cayley built a large gliding machine, along the lines of his 1799 design, and tested the device with a 10-year old boy aboard. The first manned flight was in 1853.

    Otto Lilienthal (23 May 1848 – 10 August 1896) German engineer and pioneer of glider design. A glider, designed by Sir George Cayley, had carried a passenger in 1853, but this aircraft had no controls. In 1891, Lilienthal became the first person to control a glider in flight. He made an estimated 2500 flights before his death in a crash.

    Regards, James.

    Werner:

    The Heinkel He 70 was a great design and one of my favorite aircraft portrayed on a stamp. It first flew in December 1932 and was designed and built as a passenger plane for Lufthansa. There was also a He 170 which was the same basic airplane reconfigured for military use. Most of the military version aircraft were used in Spain during its Civil War in the 1930s with some also being sent to Hungary.

    Germany pictured the Blitz again on a 1979 semi-postal stamp (see below). Italy also used a more stylized image of the He 70 on two 1947 stamps, copies of which I do not have in my collection.

    The Jumkers JU-87 Stuka was a feared airplane for those on the ground. Designed as a dive bomber and ground support aircraft, it saw service in all European and African fronts during WW II. It was particularly effective against tanks. In the air, it was a different story as the airplane was slow and poorly armed and, as a result, easy pickings for allied fighter aircraft, unless it was piloted by an ace flyer such as Hans Ulrich Rudel.

    Rudel, who served as a Stuka pilot mostly on the Eastern Front, is credited with flying over 2,500 missions, destroying over 500 tanks, several hundred other types of ground vehicles and weapons, plus sinking two ships and several landing craft and even shooting down nine fighter aircraft. Rudel was widely hailed a hero of the Reich and, while losing a leg, survived the war. He apparently never abandoned the Nazi ideology and became a controversial figure after the war. He lived in Argentina for a number of years, but returned to Germany where he died as the result of a stroke in 1986.

    A remarkable man and aviator whose autobiography Trotzdem was translated under the title of Stuka Pilot. An interesting read for those who like aviation and/or WW II personal histories.

    The stamp is one of my favorites in my Aircraft on Stamps collection.
