Hungary First Issue
Next, we have a lovely miniature sheet issued in 1993 to honor Hungarian first democratically-elected prime minister, József Antall (8 April 1932 – 12 December 1993). József Antall was instrumental in laying the foundations on which today’s Hungary stands. His most lasting achievement, evident from his government’s first day in power, was decisively to redefine the country’s foreign affairs priorities and highlight reintegration into Europe as a strategic aim.
The Hungarian gliding movement began in 1929 at the Farkashegy gliding site and the 17th International Old Timer Rally was held from July 22 to 30, 1989 at the Budakeszi-Farkashegy Airport, about one mile from the original site and some seven miles outside Budapest. About 800 participants from 15 nations came with 85 beautifully restored antique and vintage sailplanes.
This cover makes me look forward to visiting this beautiful country in December. Counting down!!!!
