In a Los Angeles Times article, several of the crew members of the various planes depicted on the new American Advances in Aviation stamp set were interviewed as to their feelings about the new stamps.

Art Peterson of Spring Grove, Ill. is quoted as saying, "The stamp is a memorial not just to the Black Cat crew but to all who flew B-24s in the war and to the workers who built the bombers." His father, Robert, was a waist gunner on the plane.

Ten airplanes are featured in the new set of 37-cent stamps which debuted Friday at ceremonies in Vienna, Va., and Oshkosh, Wis. They should be available at your local post office today.
