saa-707

Hello,   I hope you enjoy seeing this stamp. A little bit of nostalgia again.  Showing the Bleriot XI and a Boeing 707. When I saw it I was thinking you don’t see meany 4 engine aircraft these days so thought I would show it. I am thinking, when did I last fly on a 4 engine plane,  must be at least some 3 or 4 years ago and given the amount of long distance flying I do I think that shows the advances in aircraft technology.

Anyway, this was issued in 1961 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first South African ariel post.  SG 220.

Enjoy your flying and your aerophilately.
