An official Australian tribute…

This official Australian decimal stamp Block of Nine forms a fine tribute to one of the greatest achievements in aviation history – the 1919 First Flight from England to Australia.

The First Flight from England to Australia

In 1919, Australian aviator Ross Smith and his brother Keith won the England to Australia Air Race in their Vickers Vimy aeroplane. Taking off from London on the 12th of November and arriving in Darwin on the 10th of December, the journey was the first flight from England to Australia and represented a major leap forward for commercial aviation.

Unique Block of Nine stamp format!

A unique tribute to the 50th anniversary of this great milestone in aviation history, this presentation features three different Australian decimal 5c stamp types – arranged in a se-tenant Block of Nine! The only Australian decimal issue in this format, and always sought after in ‘as issued’ Mint Unhinged condition, we have just a few Blocks of Nine available. Click add to cart now!
