nz-sg707-pair

Hello, apology for long time between posts but I have been away again. This time a lovely weekend in Hong Kong. I did find time to visit the Mong Kok stamp arcade and enjoy browsing the many stamp shops there. I found quite a few of interest. This lovely mint unhinged pair.

It is SG 707 from the 1950 Centennial of Canterbury commemorative issue. The stamp does not show a 707!!!!, it shows a Lockheed 10 Electra flying over Timaru. Timaru is located 157 kilometres southwest of Christchurch on the eastern Pacific coast of the South Island..

The Lockheed 10 Electra is an American twin-engine, all-metal aircraft developed by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation in the 1930s.  This plane gained considerable fame as one was flown by Amelia Earhart on her ill-fated around-the-world expedition in 1937.

I hope you enjoy seeing this pair. Enjoy your aerophilately.

Michael
