Hong Kong 1984

 Hello, something different. I hope you can see this clearly - perhaps click the image to enlarge. 

A First Day of Issue cover form Hong Kong I found while sorting a few stamps today. Celebrating Aviation in Hong Kong from a 1984 issue.

Rather nice. It shows an Imperial Airways DH86A which was the aircraft that started international flights to Hong Kong back in 1936 from Penang.

Also a Pan Am S-42-B Clipper which started regular services to Manila in 1937.

A Cathay Pacific 747 in the old livery of course, and a Balloon in which the Baldwin Brothers made an ascent from Happy Valley in 1891.

Hope to hear from a reader for a next series or should I just do a few from Hong Kong? Yes that will do, and I know just the one to show tomorrow. Something you have never seen before! Read me tomorrow. You can email me at

See you next time.
