Equatorial Guinea Stamps of Old Aircraft

This sheet let of 16 stamps issued by Equatorial Guinea in 1975, of aircraft around the world from 1896 to 1940 are individually portrayed on these stamps. From the plane built by the Wright Brothers to the “Spirit of Saint Louis” and many others. This sheet is almost a history of aircraft evolution. It was given to me by Maria.

Equatorial Guinea, officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, is a country located in Middle Africa. It comprises two parts: a Continental Region (Río Muni), including several small offshore islands like Corisco, Elobey Grande and Elobey Chico; and an insular region containing Annobón island and Bioko island (formerly Fernando Po) where the capital Malabo is situated.
Equatorial Guinea has one of the worst human rights records in the world, consistently ranking among the "worst of the worst" in Freedom House's annual survey of political and civil rights and Reporters Without Borders ranks President Obiang among its "predators" of press freedom. Out of 44 sub-Saharan countries, Equatorial Guinea ranks 9th highest in the Human Development Index (HDI) and 115th overall, which is among the medium HDI countries.
