Description

Using the Caravelle to cross the iron curtain ,Air France operated the first Caravelle flight to Warsaw Poland and Russia on the 2nd April 1960.

The Postal authorities in Warsaw back-stamped the cover on the 3rd April but the Moscow back stamp looks like the 12th April.[What were they doing until then as the return flight was made on the 3rd April so the mail must have been there on time.[ I suspect the back stamp would have had the date stamp wrongly set ahead.]

TheĀ  Warsaw cover has been opened on the right side , a tad unevenly ,the Russian cover is fine. selling as a pair.

Some edges and corners wear and age .
