Série Touristique: Premier Jour d'Emission

Première Exposition Philatélique Malgache, Mai 1962

[Tourism Series: First Day of Issue: First Malagasy Stamp Exhibition, May 1962]
Editions U Des Co (1962).
First Day Cover

This first day cover, issued on 7 May 1962, features the image of a Madair (later Air Madagascar) aircraft in flight over the port at Hellville in Nosy Be by René Cottet. It was franked in Tananarive (Antananarivo) and bears three stamps. The first has face value 30 francs and depicts a beach scene at Foulpointe (Mahavelona) with a pirogue (Michel catalogue code: MG 479; Yvert et Tellier catalogue code: MG 366). The second has face value 50 francs and depicts a Madair aircraft in flight over the port at Hellville in Nosy Be (Michel catalogue code: MG 480; Yvert et Tellier catalogue code: MG 367). The third has face value 10 francs and depicts the Station Thermale de Ranomafana (Michel catalogue code: MG 478; Yvert et Tellier catalogue code: MG 365).

Notes

  • The aircraft depicted here in Madair livery does not apparently represent an actual aircraft from their fleet, as the first jet to operate in the airline's colours was not active until 18 months later, by which time the company had changed its name from Madair to Air Madagascar.
