Do you ever had preference for an specific "Clipper" [commodity, service, an specific event... You name it]?

Mine was the Clipper Costa Rica, back in the 80's from MIA to CCS. What a beautiful plane...

I flew on two 707s but do not know their identities.

747-121 Clipper Derby
747-212 China Clipper II
A300-B4 Clipper New York

All three were beautiful planes.

Clipper Neptune's Favorite - 747 from JFK to ZRH in Jul '87

and

Clipper Kingfisher - 727 from ZRH to STR on the same trip.

I've been on other PA flights but those two Clipper names were the ones that stuck with me.
