Sabena: Le Premier Vol, Lagos-Bruxelles, 16 Déc 1965

Yesterday's post featured a true gem, an old reel of vintage Sabena adverts, showing the glorious age, with its glamorous features and conveniences, both aboard the jet fleet and when transiting at National Airport, Zaventem.

Here is a first-day cover of a similar era, and recalls two earlier Sabena first-day covers, which have both the contradictory image of a Boeing 707 aircraft over par Caravelle label, and does not mention any particular routing of the flight between the two distant cities.
