#UXC22 – 1985 33c China Clipper

1985 China Clipper Postal Card

 
Postal cards are postal stationery with an imprinted stamp or indicium signifying the prepayment of postage. Highly collectable, they would make a great complement to any stamp or cover collection.
 
About The China Clipper
 
On November 22, 1935, the first-ever plane to carry transpacific airmail, the China Clipper, took flight from San Francisco.  One week later, the plane landed in Manila, completing its 8,000-mile inaugural journey across the Pacific, delivering more than 110,000 pieces of mail!
 
The route's success led to transpacific service being extended to Hong Kong and China two years later.  20¢ and 50¢ stamps were issued to cover the postage rates to these new destinations.
 
The flying boats that carried transpacific airmail are an interesting chapter in postal history!
