For those following, I promised to get back with the details on that Malaysia  aviation stamp.

It is one of a set of three issued in 2011 to commemorate 100 year of aviation in Malaysia. It is reported and documented to show an Antoinette VII monoplane  in which the countries first flight was flown by pilot G P Fuller.  Well! do you believe everything you read?

What makes this stamp sort of interesting is that what I wrote above is all wrong. The actual plane on the stamp is a Bleriot XI and the pilot was a Dutchman, Giisbertus Peter Kuller.  GP Fuller was an Englishman I believe.   Sometimes the news reported is wrong.  Well I never would have thought that!!

Have a great weekend  Michael
