colombia-747

Hello, I hope you enjoy seeing this stamp tonight. It was issued in 1976 to commemorate the inaugural Avianca 747 flight. Avianca is the national airline and flag carrier of Colombia. It is reported as being the first Latin America airline to operate the 747 but there is also a view that  VIASA / KLM was also the first. Whatever, it is the 2nd oldest airline in  the world after KLM.

One reason I particularly like this stamp is the background colour of a yellowish  shade. So many aviation themed stamps show blue skies. How different is this.  I think it I rather attractive.

Enjoy your stamps.   Michael cddstamps.com
