Hello, I just got back to Hong Kong from Sydney and on a lovely flight with Qantas. An A380. Very nice. Much quicker, and quieter on an A380 than a Super Constallation, and overall much nicer flight I expect 🙂

So I thought this would be a nice cover to show. Many years ago now. January 14th 1958, when Qantas carried some mail on their first round the world flight which was operated by a Super Constallation, the “Southern Aurora”, tail VH-EAO, flying Sydney – USA –  London – Sydney.  A 2/- stamp was used but this cover has two stamps.

It is in surprisingly good condition for a 50 plus year old cover.

 Hope you enjoy seeing it 

Have a great weekend… Michael
