The Great Transatlantic Race The "Atlantic" - Henry Hawker and Mackenzie Grieve
1919 3c red brown, bottom left corner margin single, traces of original gum, unsigned, with undefinable diagonal traces of ink (which partially show through the perforations at upper right margin), fine and extremely rare positional piece, with 2002 BPA certificate (SG 142). While only 76 unused examples are believed to still exist, the copy offered here is the only sheet corner margin single and according to Mr. Vasseur, it is now recognized as an "Intermediate Essay", showing the overprint with the correct size, but placed too low and covering the "3 Cents" at bottom. As such, this is the only known essay of the Hawker ("It is the only corner stamp known and it has a 3 pencil written in the margin. This stamp is an essay. It has the overprint with the correct dimension (19 1/4mm, but still positioned too low, overlapping the value. It is obviously an intermediate stage between the "large" 22 1/4mm overprint and the issued stamps" (Revisiting the C1 "Hawker", by Jean-Claude Vasseur, The Newfie newsletter of the Newfoundland Study group of BNASP, Number 138 January/March 2010)

The team left Harbour Grace for New York on 4 July 1919. On the way to New York, the engine started to overheat. There was a loud crack, the engine stopped, and a piece of metal went through the fuselage, which forced them down in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, where they landed heavily on a small racetrack and destroyed the fuselage and damaged the tail. It took until October to repair the damage and continue the journey to New York.

By 1927, he had flown most of the globe in his double-hulled Savoia-Marchetti seaplane named the "Santa Maria II". In May 1927, De Pinedo was on the last leg of his circumnavigation of the Atlantic. The Newfoundland government asked him to carry a mail bag back to Italy for them. He agreed, and the stamp was quickly issued to publicize the event. He took off from Trepassey, Newfoundland on May 23, 1927. During his flight from Newfoundland to Italy, De Pinedo experienced engine trouble and he was forced to land in the ocean. He and his aircraft were found, and they were towed to the Azores. Following repairs to his aircraft, De Pinedo finally completed his flight, and he arrived in Rome on June 1, 1927)

The next day, after repairing a landing gear, they took off to Paris, then to Germany, where they were forced to land due to fuel leaks.

The flight was intended to call attention to the dismemberment of Hungary after World War I. It was a spectacular success. On July 15, 1931, the trans-Oceanic flight left Harbor-Grace for Budapest on a non-stop flight of 26 hours and 20 minutes (Charles Lindbergh's flight in 1927 took six hours longer) and marked the first time that an airplane crossing the ocean had radio contact both with the starting and landing aerodromes. It was also the first time such a flight was used for political purposes. The pilots were received as heroes in Budapest)

ITALY ITALIAN LEVANT Air Post
1922 15 PIASTRE on Expresso 25c rose, overprinted "SERVIZIO POSTALE AEREO / PIASTRE 15" in thin black font, unused, centered to lower left, large part original gum, excellent color, typical slight ageing (mentioned for accuracy only), fine. Sassone states that only five (!) examples are recorded (one of which is housed in the British Library collection, ex Fitzgerald). Certainly a major rarity of Aero-Philately and the rarest stamp of the Italian collecting area, signed Sanabria, Diena, Bolaffi and Colla, with 1966 Giulio Bolaffi and 2007 Giorgio Colla certificates. This stamp was prepared in Constantinople for the planned CIDNA flight from Bucharest to Paris. Due to pressure from the French Embassy in Constantinople and the Lausanne Conference calling for the closure of all Foreign Post Offices within Turkey, the issue was aborted and nearly all examples of this stamp were destroyed and burnt (In 1924, the fourth edition of Champion Air Mail Stamp Catalog reports on page 295 - one air mail stamp was prepared in 1922 by Italian Post Office in Constantinople. This special stamp was designated for air mails to be used for the French air line Bucharest–Paris. At the last moment, the headquarters of the Ottoman Post Office denied the authorization to establish a regular foreign air line on its own territory. The Italian stamp was not issued and we think that all were burned). A March 2015 article by N. L. Cipriani and C. E. Manzati published in the Collectors Club Philatelist showed 10 examples of this stamp from collections/auction catalogues assembled by Messrs. Piermattei and Naddei. The stamp offered above is illustration No.4 in their article,
