Strangely, in the early days of airmail service, mail dispatched by air took longer to reach its destination than mail sent by train. People discontinued using airmail because it was less efficient and the rate was too high. Often, mail was lost entirely, due to accidents! 
 
Postmaster General Irving Glover foresaw the possibilities for airmail service. He drew up plans for “night flights,’’ in order to prove that airmail service was a time-saving device. The U.S. (from New York to the Pacific Coast) was divided into several zones. Airmail delivery for a one-ounce letter, from one zone to the next, was 8¢. This necessitated the issuance of a new airmail stamp, and this design was created.
