It will be the first of two identical design stamps to be issued this year. This first stamp in blue commemorates the pioneering spirit of the brave Army pilots who initiated the world’s first regularly scheduled airmail service. An identical stamp, printed in red, will be issued later this summer to commemorate the beginning of airmail delivery through the U.S. Post Office Department, which began in August 1918.
