This 1990 stamp of Poland commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and Poland's participation in that campaign. A British Supermarine Spitfire is shown.

From Wikipedia, "A total of 145 Polish fighter pilots served in the RAF during the Battle of Britain, making up the largest non-British contribution. By the end of the war, around 19,400 Poles were serving in the Polish Air Force in Great Britain and in the RAF."

On December 19, 1998 India issued this stamp (Sc #1719) to honor the birth centenary of Lt. Indra Lal Roy. The stamp depicts the flyer, his SE5a (B180) fighter, and his Distinguished Flying Cross.

From Wikipedia, "Indra Lal Roy (1898-1918) is the sole Indian World War I flying ace. While serving in the Royal Flying Corps and its successor, the Royal Air Force, he claimed ten aerial victories; five aircraft destroyed (one shared), and five 'down out of control' (one shared) in just over 170 hours flying time...Roy was killed over Carvin on July 22, 1918 in a dog fight against the Fokker D.VIIs of Jagdstaffel 20."
