Sir: The Architects of the Air stamps do not celebrate war, rather the great partnerships between constructors and designers that created such unique aircraft. Each plane on the stamps was revolutionary in its own way and the Architects of the Air were the trailblazers for today's modern designs.

The Spitfire, Lancaster, Mosquito, Meteor and Hunter shown on the stamps represent different aspects of great aviation design styles and show how design has evolved from the propeller to the jet age.

The stamps are issued to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Roy Chadwick, designer of the Lancaster.
