Clipper Romance Of The Skies: 50 Years Ago

Fri Nov 09, 2007 8:07 pm

I saw this article in today's SF Chronicle:


Why the plane went down somewhere between SFO and HNL is still a mystery. And, I'm guessing the plane is really a Stratocruiser given the picture (Ya gotta love reporters  Yeah sure ).

R.I.P., 50 years on.
