This official Isle of Man Post Office First Day cover features the innovative miniature sheet celebrating the BLOODHOUND project and its links to the Isle of Man.
The sheet is cancelled with the first day of issue, and it features a unique postmark inspired by the BLOODHOUND logo. Inside the envelope is a card explaining the project, written by the BLOODHOUND team, and featuring details Swagelok's involvement and a contribution from Adrian Moore, Chairman of the Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster about how BLOODHOUND can inspire and educate.
The sheet includes two stamps showing the BLOODHOUND car and two labels, with one featuring the legendary Richard Noble and current world record holder Andy Green, BLOODHOUND's driver. The design encapsulates the engineering excellence involved in the project and reflects the innovation by including three special print finishes; metallic ink, varnish and thermochromic ink, which disappears when heated to reveal the inside of the BLOODHOUND car.
Behind the images lie technical line drawings underlining that this is a showcase of the engineering prowess involved, as well as of the ambition of setting new records.
