"P-5 Airplane" t-shirt

$34.95

Not many people will understand the Cyrillic, but you can tell them the story of this plane:

The Р-5 is a Soviet multi-purpose single-motor aircraft created at the end of the 1920s in Nikolay Polikarpov’s design bureau. The plane was mass-produced from 1930 through 1936. It was one of the most widely produced aircraft at that time in the USSR, with more than 1000 of them used for carrying mail, passengers, and freight. Soviet forces had more than 5000 of these planes at their disposal, where they functioned as spy planes, light bombers, and ground-attack aircraft until the start of the 1940s.

 

Serge Stamper's Aviation Collection

Serge Stamper’s pride is his full collection of Russian stamps, the oldest being from 1857, which he is thrilled to share with us. Collecting, which includes of course collecting stamps, is for Stamper a tool used to investigate life. Here Stamper’s aim was researching Russian and Soviet aviation. Aviation in the Soviet Union was considered a supremely important field, on the same level as space exploration. Stamper’s most vivid recollections include flying on expeditions in a Soviet An-2 airplane and in Mi-4, Mi-6, and Mi-8 helicopters. Yes, he loves to fly as well! 

Who is Serge Stamper?

Stamper is a man with an interesting life story. He spent his childhood in a circle of young natural scientists at the Darwin Museum, the largest museum of natural science in Europe. His passion for biology and botany are still aflame. In his youth Stamper worked on geological expeditions in Chukotka and on the border with Afghanistan. He learned the trade of jeweler and engraver at the Stroganov Academy, one of the top three art universities in Russia. In the 1990s and 2000s he became involved in business and was quite successful. Serge also has a passion for collecting. He amassed a collection of contemporary art, and dreams of starting a heraldry collection (but claims he is too lazy). However, realizing his long-held passion for biology is a must. We chose Serge Stamper as a supplier for our shop because of the wide range of his interests, his exquisite taste, and his incessant curiosity.
