Snail mail becomes air mail

If you are an aircraft buff and a stamp collector, the United States Postal Service is about to deliver for you in a big way.

This summer the post office will make available 10 stamp designs titled “”American Advances in Aviation.”” The designs, painted by William S. Phillips, an award-winning historical aviation artist, are models produced during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, including warbirds, V-tailed Bonanzas and Ercoupes. The Hughes H-1 racer and Boeing’s YB-52 Stratofortress are depicted in the header illustration.
