Austria – Aircraft on Stamps – Part IV

Hello,  today I am  showing this stamp from 1973 and the DC9.     We finished with the DC8 yesterday so timely to show this next aircraft in the Douglas series.

It was issued to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the first international airmail service, the 50th anniversary of the Austrian Aviation Corporation and the 15th Anniversary of Austrian Airlines.  Interesting  I thought that just one stamp.   Today would have been 6 minimum!!!!!, well at least in some countries I can think of!!!!

Anyway, quite a nice stamp,  I rather like the cloud formation and the touch of colour and the flight pitch of the aircraft.  Nice design and artwork I think.

See you soon,  and if you want to write I am at
