Key West - Havana airmail service stamp

Fig. 11: This stamp was apparently printed especially to mark Pan American’s inaugural Fokker FVIIb service between Key West and Havana on “OCT.28-1927.” But the airfield at Key West was not ready, and the airline astutely hired an aircraft, a Fokker FC-2 floatplane, to establish the air mail rights.
