Austria – Aircraft on Stamps – Part VIII

 Hello again,  How is your weekend?    Philatelic maybe?  Well if not, just enjoy this next stamp from Austria.  

Issued in 1999  to commemorate  WIPA.  What?  I bet so many people see that and wonder what it means.    Well strictly translated it is Wiener Internationale Postwertzeichen-Ausstellung, in other words the Vienna International Philatelic Exhibition. A major exhibition and for this stamp it was held in 2000 and happens there every so often, around every 8 or 9 years I think.

I wish I could go whenever the next exhibition is on.  Wonderful place. Here we have a stamp which could be saying… Wine invites you to … that is talking my language, but seriously Wien is also the German for Vienna. Ok, so you knew that,  so on to the aircraft. What is it?

You won’t see many around these days. And the last time I flew on one was on Virgin, Hong Kong to Sydney, many, maybe  8 or 9 or 10 years ago now.   Does that give a clue?

Nice stamp I think, because there is so much happening on it.

Now I am down to one more from Austria to show tomorrow then I need a new topic  / theme.  I welcome readers ideas. If you want to write your thoughts I am at
