Turkish-Fokker-f27

Hello, here is one I found today. It shows a Turkish Airlines  Fokker F.27-100 Friendship.  the actual plane on the stamp was built in 1959 and broken up in July 1986.  It last flew for TAAG – Linhas Aereas de Angola Airlines.

The Fokker F27 Friendship was a turboprop developed and manufactured by the Dutch manufacturer Fokker.  The aircraft has the distinction of being the most numerous post-war aircraft to have been manufactured in the Netherlands; the F27 was also one of the most successful European airliners of its era.

I have no idea why the plane was on the stamp, other than the stamp was issued in 1967 as one of a set of 5 showing different aircraft.

If anyone knows more or can tell me where to buy this set (I cannot find it for sale) I would be most interested to hear from you at   cddstamps@gmail.com
