On November 24, 1981 Canada issued these two 35c stamps (Sc #905-6) arranged in a traditional sheet in "checkerboard" fashion. One stamp shows a deHaviland Canada Dash-7, which can take off and land on smaller and shorter runways. This craft is adaptable for passengers, freight, or mixed cargo loads.

The other stamp depicts an Avro C102 Jetliner. This craft is a medium-range turbojet powered airliner designed by James C. Floyd and Built by Avro Canada in 1949.

Souvenir sheet from France, issued 1999, commemorating French author/aviator Antoine de Saint Exupery, and his most famous literary creation, The Little Prince, one of the most popular children's books of all time. Exupery began his flying career in the early days of the Airmail, and flew in Europe, Africa and South America which he wrote about in one of his earlier books: Southern Mail. During World War II he flew reconnaissance missions for the French Air Force and was lost, presumed crashed, during a mission over the Mediterranean Sea in July 1944. If you are ever in Paris, and are an aviation buff, a must see is the Air and Space Museum at Le Bourget airport, just north of the city (this was the airport where Lindbergh landed on his famous 1927 trans-Atlantic flight)One of their outstanding exhibits is a whole collection of artifacts on the life of Exupery, including a beautiful Caudron Simoun plane painted dark blue, that once belonged to him.

Set of stamps, Lithuania C79-C84, to commemorate the ill-fated flight of Lithuanian-American pilots, Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas, who were attempting a nearly 7,000 km non stop flight from Floyd Bennett Field in New York, to Kaunas, Lithuania, in a specially modified Bellanca CH-300 named the Lituanica. They crashed about 33 hours into their flight near the town of Kuhdamm, Germany (present day Mysliborz, Poland). The crash has never been satisfactorily explained. An Art Deco monument to Darius and Girenas was put up in Marquette Park, Chicago

I was gazing at those Lithuanian stamps from two posts back, and wondering, as I often have since acquiring them a while back, what the phrase "oro pastas" means. Then it finally dawned on me: nothing to do with Spanish gold or macaroni and linguini, oro pastas must be Lithuanian for "airmail". Sure enough, a quick perusal of the entire Lithuania section in my Scott Specialized Classic catalogue, which goes up to 1940, confirmed that these words appear only on airmail stamps.

That last one with the souvenir sheet from the Cayman Islands reminded me of something. The lower left stamp depicting an Airspeed Oxford reminded me of a terrific book, which anyone with an interest in the history of aviation would enjoy. The British author, Nevil Shute who was hugely popular from the 1930's until his death in the 1960's was by profession originally an aeronautical engineer and began his career at Airspeed, and probably had a hand in designing the Oxford. He also worked on the R100 Airship. In addition to his many novels, which included The Pied Piper (made into a movie with the very young Roddy McDowell in the 1940's), A Town Like Alice, Trustee From the Toolroom, On The Beach, etc. he published his autobiography called Slide Rule, in which he discussed his long and very interesting career in aircraft design. A terrific read.
