Occussi-Ambeno 1990 Zeppelin Round-the-world flight, with INVERTED overprint.

The Round-the-world flight of one of Occussi-Ambeno's helium-filled zeppelin fleet in 1990 was a major public relations event in the Fifth World, and commemorative stamps were issued by a number of countries.

Sadly, the overprinting (on Occussi-Ambeno's "Mutiny on the Bounty" 90c commemorative from the year previous) was a tad rushed, and some stamps had the overprints inverted.

For more details on Swiftair, the Occussi-Ambeno zeppelin airline, please see their website: http://geocities.ws/swiftair/

AWESOME Bruce, this might be the best ever stamp you have ever produced, a bit of a pity about the rushed inverted overprint, but at least they got it square!!!

Fantastic work!!!
OK!!!

At the weekend I had a postcard from Bruce, currently enjoyong himself in Ocussi Ambeno. Not that though it has come through as air mail, there are no regular NZ stamps on the postcard and there was no excess to pay on it. Were the franked Occussi stamps considered to have been covering the postage rate? LMSO

Glad to see it reached you safely Steve!

The marvels of our zeppelin airline, eh?
