Stamp Features Marine One

New stamps being issued by the United States Postal Service will commemorate presidential travel on Air Force One and Marine One. The stamps will go on sale June 13 but were displayed at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland during its annual Armed Forces Day open house. The presidential helicopter, Marine One, will be shown on a $16.25 Express Mail stamp.  The Marine One fleet is based at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Va. Currently, Marine One is a specially equipped Sikorsky Black Hawk. A new presidential helicopter that is derived from the AgustaWestland EH101 and built by Lockheed Martin and AgustaWestland, is scheduled to go into service between 2009 and 2014. The presidential helicopter fleet is comprised of 23 aircraft. For related news
