Poland - Aircraft on Stamps .. two more tonight

 Hello, welcome to the weekend,  I just have to show two more stunning stamps from Poland.

These especially for the design, engraving and images and also the history I am reading.  So a few more. Two tonight and one or two more over the weekend.

These are two semi postal stamps from the 1952 Aviation Day issue – there was a 3rd stamp which was a regular issue but  just these two showed the aircraft you see.  While looking for some trivia about these I found a blog – written back in 2016 which I want to tell you about because the author talks about these stamps.   So no repeating from me, other than to say great blog article. and a brilliant blog, especially if you  enjoy as I do the design work and engravings of Czeslaw Slania.

My trivia question here is this: SG describes the aircraft as being a Yak 18 – A  soviet trainer also used as a bomber  while  the blog shown above  says it is a Zuch 2, a  Polish aerobatic and trainer aircraft. The two aircraft look very much alike. Anyone know more?

This is the other semi postal stamp and this is definitely a glider. 

See you next time    Michael …. or visit my online store    where I have  some interesting aviation related
