直布罗陀在2019年发行邮票以纪念超音速飞机首飞50周年“Concorde”。 协和飞机由四家合作公司设计和建造,其中两家在英国–英国航空航天和劳斯莱斯–法国有两家,分别是Aérospatiale和SNECMA(National Sé’建造与建造工程’航空)。最终产品于1969年完成,尽管它的第一次商业飞行是’t until 1976. Only 20 协和飞机s were ever built, six prototype and development aircraft and 14 that were actually used commercially.

 它的最大速度是声音速度的两倍,最高时速达到1,370 mph, transported passengers from New York to London in less than 3.5 hours. A crash that killed 113 people in 2000 caused all 协和飞机s to be taken out of service for a year for modifications but in its 27 years 协和飞机 only saw that one single fatal accident. It remained in service for 27 years until 2003.

With special thanks to the London Postal Museum the 文章 continues with facts surrounding original designs put forward to the British and French postal authorities regarding 协和飞机 philatelic products.

一个的想法 commemorative stamp to mark the maiden flight of 协和飞机 was first brought to the Post Office’s attention by a Mr. Doubtfire who sent in an unsolicited design in 1967.

当时还没有计划发行纪念邮票的计划,但是决定研究法国邮政管理局打算做什么。法国人已经委托一位艺术家,他们共同同意,每个国家在飞行后都会发行自己的邮票。

受委托设计英国邮票的艺术家有大卫·盖特曼,菲利普·沙兰德和理查德·内格斯,迈克尔&西尔维亚·高曼(Sylvia Goaman)和玛格丽特·卡尔弗特(Margaret Calvert)。 Doubtfire先生已经看到了未经请求的设计,S Down小姐已经看到了另一个。

The stamp needed to represent the collaboration between Britain and 法国 and depict the plane itself. Margaret Calvert’s design (seen above) overlaps the countries on the map as 协和飞机 flies over. The red, white and blue colours used also unified the countries.

所有设计提交后,将它们发送到技术部,以检查技术准确性。进行了较小的更改,并且还提出了声波,如用于 Philip Sharland and Richard Negus design below, shouldn’t be included as it drew attention to the sonic booms made by 协和飞机.

HM女王在1968年选择并批准了最终设计(见下文),其中包括Michael的作品&西尔维亚·高曼(Sylvia Goaman)和大卫·绅士(David Gentleman)。

The 协和飞机 stamp issue was accompanied by a presentation pack also designed by David Gentleman. It contained the three issued stamps and detailed information about the plane’s creation and specifications.

制作邮票时,一等舱价格为4天,但是由于首飞航班的延误,价格升至5天。较旧的4d邮票上的两个荧光带仍将流经头等舱,因此决定允许这种情况通过,而不是浪费金钱进行重新打印。

The first flight of 协和飞机 took place on the 2 March 1969 with the French issuing their stamp on the day of the flight, Britain issued theirs the day after on the 3rd.

协和飞机 has also featured in other stamp issues such as Airliners from 2002 and the Design Classics issue of 2009 celebrating British design.
