To mark the 2012 RAF Leuchars Jubilee Airshow, the RAF Leuchars Charity Volunteer Group (CVG) joined forces with the British Forces Philatelic Service (BFPS) to produce a limited edition commemorative cover.

The cover, produced by the BFPS on behalf of RAF Leuchars, was designed by the 2011 RAF Photographer of the Year, Senior Aircraftman Matt Baker, who is part of RAF Leuchars photographic section.

It bears a first class stamp “Queen’s Golden Jubilee” issued for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and is cancelled by a unique BFPS handstamp made especially for the Airshow.

Only 160 covers bearing the above stamp were flown in an aircraft from the 2012 Typhoon Display team.

The cover comes complete with an A4 information sheet in full colour.
