Hello, tonight one of the 4 stamps issued in 1991 to commemorate the Singapore Civil Aviation Authority and the History of Aviation. A lovely set and I will show more in future posts.

This $2 stamp shows Kallang Airport. Kallang was Singapore’s first civilian airfield. It opened in 1937 to cater for both seaplanes and aircraft such as the DC2, which is shown on the stamp. At the time it was regarded by many as the finest airport in the “British Empire” because of its all weather capability for both seaplanes and aircraft.
