There are no posts for some time but I have been adding pages. Earlier posts get buried with fresh posts and may be forgotten. So I have displayed Aviation Stamps in various categories like Balloons, parachutes, airships etc on different pages. These pages are listed on the side bar and will be clickable at all times. Click on a page to view its contents. I will be adding pages from time to time to show my collection and additions.
First manned flight was achieved in 1783 when the Montgolfier brothers flew their balloon for the first time. Since then balloons have progressed to airplanes but ballooning is still around as a sport and for recreation purposes. The 200th anniversary of this event was commemorated philatelicaly by almost all countries of the world.
Following are some balloon stamps from my collection.
