vultee-and-glenn-martin-aircraft-company-postal-history-covers AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURERS' COVERS - VULTEE AND GLENN MARTIN

Vultee Aircraft was created in November 1939, when Vultee Aircraft Division of AVCO was reorganized as an independent company. The P-66 Vanguard was a 1941 fighter program that was intended for Sweden that was inherited by the USAAC, Great Britain and China. The P-66 had a mediocre combat record in China and was out of service by 1943. The XP-54 fighter project was the last Vultee Aircraft design, but only two examples were built. Vultee was the first company to build aircraft on a powered assembly line, and the first to use women workers in production-line positions. On March 17, 1943, Consolidated and Vultee merged, creating Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation, popularly known as Convair.
The Glenn L. Martin Company was an American aircraft and aerospace manufacturing company founded by aviation pioneer Glenn L. Martin. The Martin Company produced many important aircraft for the defense of the US and allies, especially during World War II and the Cold War. During the 1950s and 60s, the Martin Company moved from the aircraft industry into the guided missile, space exploration, and space utilization industries.

Vultee cover is scarce and has nice airplane vignette in 1942 meter mark. Glenn Martin cover is 1948 with 202 aircraft vignette in meter mark.  Both business-size covers in very clean condition.

Fantastic easy-to-read letter with only minor fold separations.  Myles Burke writes to New York financier James Prentiss demanding his immediate presence in Dublin to administer to a large number of Irish immigrants Burke has booked to come to America.  Apparently Prentiss was to have provided ships for the crossing to New York.  Burke is concerned the delay has caused some to consider going to Texas instead.  He has convinced them to work their farms for the time being.  A long and detailed letter well worth reading and researching.  Historic.
