First Flight & Commemorative Covers - Page 1
These were issued by BUA and BCal, aircraft manufacturers and organsations that were in some way linked to the airlines. Many were carried in fleet aircraft at the time and the details of the aircraft and crew recorded on them.

They were typically issued for First Scheduled Flights, arrival of new aircraft, aircraft deliveries, Special Flights, GLCT Flights for Children and a host of other reasons too.

I have included some by those other organisations where there is a good link to BUA / BCal. So far no Caledonian commemorative covers have appeared, though being primarily a charter airline at that time there may not be any?

But I hope you enjoy the covers, they are listed in date order, and the format is    Year  -   Month  -  Day
