Welcome to Club Concorde - AIACC
First half-year 2019
Friday 1st March 2019
It was fifty years ago in Toulouse - Blagnac.
The Concorde prototype 001, registered F-WTSS, took off for the first time from Blagnac airport for a flight lasting 29 minutes ; note that during this flight, the landing gear was not retracted.
On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of this first flight, La Poste of France issues a stamp: put on sale early on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd March 2019. Going on general sale on Monday 4th March.
This stamp is issued in sheet of 40 stamps and mini-sheet of 10 stamps illustrated margins.
The stamp design is from Jame's Prunier. The outline drawing of the mini-sheet is by Bruno Ginringhelli. The stamps are printed in rotogravure.
The first day cancellation of the French stamp of 2019 will take place on three different sites : in Paris at the Carré d'Encre, at Athis-Mons (near Orly) probably inside the Concorde F-WTSA and in Toulouse in the premises of the Airbus Works Council.
On this occasion, the AIACC Club Concorde, in association with the Delta Museum and AIRitage, will be present at the Delta Museum on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd March. A philatelic exhibition on the stamps of the first flight of Concorde will be held at the Museum's premises.
Also on this occasion, a philatelic exhibition focused on the emissions of the first flight of Concorde will also be held in the premises of the EC Airbus.
Both exhibitions are made from the collections of two members of the AIACC Club Concorde.
In parallel the Association of Friends of the Air Museum - AAMA and the Association of Concorde and Supersonic Professionals - APCOS will organize conferences and visits of the 2 supersonic planes of the Bourget Museum and two auctions of parts and objects Concorde will take place in Toulouse, in the Aeroscopia museum on Saturday and at the Saint-Aubin Auction House on Sunday.
The "Club Concorde" recalls to its impassioned philately that, from now on, the innovations are announced and illustrated progressively with their emission, in the page ' the philatelic products'. It is thus in real time that the Club informs you of the philatelic items
