Although this photo is a little blurry, it may be the only photo in existence showing both of these classic aircraft together. This photo taken by my father, William G. Ebert, shows a Sikorsky VS-44A, Excambian (on the left) next to a Boeing Model 314 Clipper. They are on the "ramp" at Baltimore Harbor Field in 1948.

The two greatest passenger-carrying flying boats ever built -- and in one photo! Who cares if it's fuzzy?

My father worked on the 3 VS-44A's when they were new for AEA. I have been tracking info on them for 20+ years and have never seen this shot. If I am correct, both of these planes flew from this Terminal, but AEA did it just once, as my father recalls. We went to this Terminal in the late 90's and it is still there, along with the unique hanger. Thanks for the picture, Fred M.

Although a fuzzy non professional shot, it probably is the only known photo showing these two historic and bye gone aircraft together - good size comparison too. the vs-44a excambian pictured here is the only known, usa built, 4 engine commercial flying boat still in existence and is now on display at the new england air museum in ct.
