Lismore to Tenterfield Airmail Test Flight postage paid envelope
On 9 June 2020, we released a postage paid envelope (PPE) to commemorate the first government-sanctioned test airmail flight in Australia, which took place 100 years ago, on 26 June 1920. Lt Frank Roberts and Royal Mail contractors Walter and James Lynn flew an Avro 504K 105 kilometres, from Lismore to Tenterfield, via Casino, in New South Wales, to deliver around 8,000 letters. While the flight didn’t lead to a regular airmail service on this route, the federal government established regular airmail routes in remote parts of Western Australia and Queensland, commencing in 1921.
