A BFPS produced commemorative cover marking the RAF Leuchars Airshow 2013. The Airshow celebrated the 65th Battle of Britain at home day.

Sadly it was also the last time that the Airshow will be held at RAF Leuchars due to a change of role for the base.

The cover carries a 1ˢᵗ Class commemorative stamp “Portrait commissioned by Royal Mail” which has been cancelled by the unique “BFPS 3165 The Last Airshow RAF Leuchars 7 Sep 13” special handstamp.

The award winning image on the cover is “Crossing Point” – Two 6 Squadron RAF Typhoon jets arrive at RAF Leuchars – by SAC Matt Baker RAF.
