Roy's Postcards: 1983/11/02

Inscription:

I spent some time at the airport this afternoon. I saw one jet take off and a 747 land. Yesterday, as I came into Dulles Airport, I saw one of these Concordes on the ground. It looked quite unique. Since they never come to L.A. I never th seem to forget that they are around.

Postcard back:

Aerospatiale/British Aerospace CONCORDE 206, G-BOAA, in the new British Airways livery, 1980. This aircraft was the first one delivered to the Overseas Division of the airline and the sixth production aircraft assembled at Filton, Bristol. Maiden flight November 5, 1975.

After the Battle is a quarterly publication which presents WWII through comparison "then and now" photographs.

Leonard's comments:

I have NO IDEA what this postcard has to do with a WWII-themed magazine. The only thing I can think of is my dad bought the magazine at the airport (seems like the sort of thing he'd like) and it had free random aerospace-themed postcards inside.
