Thank you in advance for the input
weren't to many biplanes in the islands at this time

There is a barracks just off the airfield with the models ts lined up to view the appearance of these two biplanes

As soon as I have a little more info, I will be able to id the plane taking the pics
The historical aspect maybe that several photos may be the only ones known which is a great thing to contribute to the study groups

I hope the avionics collectors enjoy the image and add to their libraries

My uncle Tommy was a pilot flying the Burma hump bomber jump and first group to bomb Japan since the Doolittle raids he was a great story storehouse and a collector of early air images.

Im bragging on unc after all he was a Major HELLBIRD !

Have to find a certain topic for clubs
This item is 4.3 X 3.4in gold foil
The club was the impetus behind showing a Lockheed product as postage C7.
I do have the letters and files back and forth with the India Gov campaigning for the design and issuance.
This foil is lightweight and hard to handle.

I dont know of any other stamp orgs or clubs that have done so?
May make for a topic?

Enjoy
