Item description:

See scan – very good condition. This is a very scarce Bulgarian cover / postcard mailed from the 1st Bulgarian Airplane Detachment / Unit during WWI. As all collectors from the aerophilately know, items from this period are extremely scarce due to the fact that it is the era of the pioneer flight and pilot officers were an extremely low number of enthusiasts. Bulgaria and Bulgarian Royal aviation has a strong history and is actually the first country in the world that used a bomb from the air during the Balkan Wars of 1912 – 1913. During WWI Bulgaria was an Imperial German ally and there were also lots of German officers involved as well as lots of German airplanes and other aviation equipment. Mostly Bulgaria used its WWI aviation for defense of the Capital of Sofia, but also in the Macedonia occupation front, the occupation of Romania and Greece, as well as protecting the Black Sea coast. This was done together with the 2 Balloon units attached to 2nd and 3rd Bulgarian Army. The postal history philatelic item listed is a card from the 1st Airplane Aviation Unit mailed on 18th of December 1917 and probably somewhere from parts of the Macedonian occupied territories during that time or the air runway of Belitza. At that time 1st Airplane Unit was attached to the Staff of 2nd Bulgarian Army. There is a military cachet applied of the 1st Airplane Unit. All postal such items were personally authorized by the current officer in charge. Thus all pieces were signed by most of the famous Bulgarian pilot aces. This way the collector also gets an original autograph of the ace. THE REAL militaria stuff… Extremely scarce aerophilately item. True gem for any collection.
