The Third Stamp features the Avro Lancaster which was the principle heavy bomber used by the RAF in the Second World War.

The Fourth Stamp illustrates The Avro Vulcan (later Hawker Siddeley) which was a high-altitude bomber that served the RAF from 1956 to 1984.

The Fifth Stamp, The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is an immediately recognisable twin rotor heavy-lifting aircraft utilized for troop motions, supply and battlefield casualty evacuation.

The 6th stamp is The Harrier or Harrier Jump-Jet, a jet powered aircraft capable of vertical liftoff and landing, making it extremely versatile.

The last stamp, The Lockheed-Martin F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, known in the UK as the Lightning II is a 5th generation STOVL multi-role supersonic stealth airplane with a flexible and extremely capable weapons system.
