JUNE 2004

Too late to feature any topical cards combining aviation and football, instead we feature connections between the Olympic Games and aviation apart from that Greek airline whose cards are among the most common airline-issue cards ever produced but even they have a few less easily available. The cover shot shows the Olympic Rings symbol on the side of Hindenburg for the 1936 Berlin games which started the trend of the games being a major propaganda and media event. After featuring the long lived C-130 Hercules last year, this time it is the turn of almost equally enduring DH/HS/B.Ae/Raytheon 125 and variants in the centrefold.

PS I think I may have used the cover shot before but too late to find another vertical Olympic related card.
