Gallaher Aviation & Space Aeroplanes 1939 Aeroplanes 1939 48 - We can’t praise this set highly enough as the colour pictures showing planes in flight are excellent, but it is the text on the back that adds to the appeal as this set was issued on the cusp of Word War II and these provide a fascinating look at aircraft of the period. Included are the iconic Spitfire and Hurricane which we are told together represent “one of Britain’s strongest methods of defence”, a Sunderland Flying Boat, Bristol Blenheim, De Havilland Tiger Moth, Westland Lysander, Miles Monarch, a Wellington bomber, the Armstrong, Whitworth Ensign which we are told had recently been delivery to Imperial Airways for European and Empire services, a Wellesley long-rang bomber, an autogiro, Fairey Swordfish, Lockheed Electra and Gloster Gladiator. So many of the backs say “delivered in large numbers to the RA.F” of tell of their use by the military so you get a real sense of a country preparing for war. The cards are size 64 x 37mm.

Murray Aviation & Space Types of Aeroplanes 1929 Types of Aeroplanes 1929 25 - Many of the big names in British aircraft manufacture are represented – DeHavilland, Westland, Vickers, Handley Page, Fairey, Supermarine and, of course, Belfast’s own Short Bros., whose “Calcutta” flying boat, we are told, accommodated 15 passengers for whom hot meals could be prepared by the steward on the “electric cooking apparatus”. Another of Short’s aeroplanes, the “Singapore” flying boat, was piloted by Sir Alan Cobham on his 20,000 miles flight round Africa. For speed however, the Supermarine “S5” built in Southampton was a world-beater, having created a new world record of 281mph in the Schneider Cup Race held in Venice in 1927. Perhaps the most remarkable machine in this series is the “Helicopter” which looks like two bi-planes mounted on a motor car. Hardly surprisingly as the text points out, “machines of this description are not yet a great success”. Size 66 x 36mm
