Description
 

B-314 Dixie Clipper

It's 1939. PanAm receives the first Boeing 314, the ultimate in luxury aircraft. Complete with sleeping berths and a real dining salon. It was the biggest plane of its time, carrying 74 passengers. The big flying boats were replaced after the war by land-based planes. With their demise an era of elegance passed that was never seen again. 152 ft wingspan. Five days, sixty hours in the air SFO-HK. When flying was still fun… Metallic fabric covered lightweight wing and fuselage frames. Transparent portholes. Detailed engines. Nostalgic PanAm colors. Incredible detail.

Legendary leviathan. Like an albatross, it seemed nearly impossible that it could even take off, skimming saves at increasing speed, revving up its four engines. Inside staterooms, dining area, bunk beds. Boarding from a dock or using a ship's tender, it was the 1930's epitome of class. This was leisure travel and luxury at the same time, never to come back in that measure.
