I don't think so. There are a few other Australian covers posted on this thread. I posted it specifically in response to your interesting cover, for your viewing pleasure.

Time to give this thread another little bump. Like the design of this one. Nothing on the reverse, no idea of the designer. Any thoughts?

Attractive covers, gslaten, especially the Delta Airlines first-flight!

I've shown this in a different thread but I think it belongs in this one.

Cheers, Bill

Very nice...I just realized the red and blue bars on the first cover diverge from left to right. I just checked my similar covers but don't have one. Another cover on my list of designs to watch for. Thanks for posting them.

I've shared this in another thread a while back, and while it's similar to another post a few pages back in this thread, this first flight autogiro cover is accompanied by a letter from then Eastern Airlines President and former World War One flying legend, Eddie Rickenbacker. He's trying to get people to buy into the innovative postal delivery technology offered by the Pitcairn Autogiro.

I like the postage due cover.

Another early cover commemorating several first airmail flights out of Newark, NJ...from "The Airmail Center of America".

I picked up this Airport Dedication cover about a year and a half ago, and it isn't listed in the AAMS catalog. I know there was a sod airstrip in Lincolnville back then. It was started by Bruce E. Brane, but I can't seem to find anything else online. Any ideas about how I can get some information about Lincoln Field? Thanks.
