US-1286766 - Lockheed Vega


US-1286766 sent by "greenqueen", a reproduction of 0,32 cents stamp of the Lockheed Vega from the Classic American Aircraft issue.

"The Vega was a six-passenger monoplane built by the Lockheed company starting in 1927. It became famous for its use by a number of record breaking pilots who were attracted to the rugged and very long-ranged design. Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly the Atlantic single handed in one, and Wiley Post flew his around the world twice." In: Wikipedia
