When you head out for your Saturday morning errands this weekend, you might want to stop by the post office. The U.S. Postal Service has just issued a new series of stamps called American Advances in Aviation. Each stamp pane features 10 designs, including the Hughes H-1 Racer, Beechcraft V35 Bonanza, and the Northrop YB-49 Flying Wing. "These engineering marvels broke records and pushed the envelope of aircraft development. They remind us of the thrill of flight and the excitement of discovery," said Linda Kingsley, vice president of strategic planning for the U.S. Postal Service. Now you can show your pride for aviation every time you mail a letter.
