About Stamp

The Avro Canada C-102 Jetliner was North America's first jet transport. It flew on 10 August 1949, only 14 days after the world's first jetliner. Design of this pure jet transport was initiated in 1946 to Trans Canada Airlines specifications, but when TCA's interest waned, work on the C-102 project continued with government support. During 1950-51 the Jetliner established several intercity flight records and showed every indication of success in the commercial transport field. This potential was not realized, for the Korean conflict led to a decision that Avro Canada concentrate its production resource on the CF-100 jet interceptor. Robert Bradford painted the illustration, and graphic designer Jacques Charette developed the format and typography for the stamp. The stamp depict the prototype Avro Jetliner flying above Toronto.
