For this week's Sunday Stamps #100, I've chosen this set of Egyptian stamps to commemorate the International Aviation Congress in Cairo. They were issued on 20 December 1933.
The 13 and 15 mil values depict the Dornier "Do X" flying boat (wiki link here), the 20 mil depicts the Graf Zeppelin airship. The Graf Zeppelin did actually land in Cairo in April 1931. I would have loved to see a Graf Zeppelin flying, it must have been an amazing sight and even more amazing to travel on one. Here's the wiki link.
