U.S. Air Force: Flight of Jets

Image of Airmail stamp, C49

The color is sky-blue. The B-52 dominates the design, as it is accompanied by either trainer or fighter jets. This is the first 50th year anniversary of the Air Force stamp issued in 1957. It is the policy of the U.S. Postal Service to commemorate historical events only in anniversaries im multiples of 50 years. Interestingly, another Air Force 50th Anniversary stamp was issued in 1997, which sadly was not an Air Mail issue. The latter issue commemorates the Air Force as a seperate branch of the service.
