Yankee Clipper flying

Giant Pan American flying boat Yankee Clipper arrived at Southampton on April 4. She has made aerial history by bringing over the largest number of passengers ever to cross the Atlantic in an airplane. Twenty two officials of Pan American Airways and of government departments crossed in hotel luxury. The machine has room for over seventy passengers and it is hoped that her type will be used on the Pan American part of the transatlantic service to be started in conjunction with Imperial Airways.
