Hello, I hope you enjoy seeing this stamp and this plane.

It is of course a Nimrod, a modification of the de Havilland Comet, developed by Hawker Siddeley as a maritime patrol aircraft.

It was designed in response to a requirement issued by the Royal Airforce to replace its fleet of Avro Shackletons.  It was operational from the October 1969 until March 2010.

In my last post I had a quiz about the 747.  I am pleased to be sending some aviation themed stamps to Jose in India, who got the answer correct – the launch customer of the 747, which was of course Pan Am.

Enjoy your aerophilately and if you are looking for some aviation themed stamps why not check out cddstamps online store  – if you click this link  or copy this to your browser   < >      you will find 60 listings.
