Flying clippers

This is seemingly the most beautiful, although short-lived episode in passenger aviation, hidden in such a name as in the poster.

In the 1930s large flying boats guaranteed passengers a feeling of comfort unknown to present aviation.

Suffice to say, that one could sleep in bunks and eat by real tables.

So far the flying clippers have had the best safety record amongst all types of long-distance passenger airplanes – there has never been any record of serious accidents on their part.
