The Royal Australian Air Force is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a special stamp issue from Australia Post. New Zealand-based Australian illustrator Jamie Tufrey was commissioned to illustrate the stamps.
Chief of Air Force Air Marshal Mark Binksin, AO, said:
“It is a fitting tribute to the crews and support personnel of the recently retired F-111, as they retrain for our future capability in our new platforms.”
The four Air Force Aviation stamps feature the F-111 (60 cents), the F/A-18F Super Hornet (60 cents), the AEW&C Wedgetail ($1.20) and the C-17 Globemaster III ($3.00) and will be available from participating Australia Post retail outlets from 22nd February 2011.
