|Title||Boeing Clipper seaplane interior showing two women seated at a table near the window, 1938 |
|Caption||The lavish furnishings of Boeing's Model 314 rivaled the luxury and comfort of ocean liners and transcontinental trains. Here Nancy Barnum and Virginia Moore relax in one of five standard passenger compartments aboard the Pan American Airways Clipper No. 2. Each compartment was furnished with 10 seats upholstered in wool tapestry with leather trim and a removable bridge table. Other amenities for the 74 passengers included both men's and women's dressing rooms, a galley that served gourmet meals catered from four-star hotels, a dining room that could seat 14 diners, and a deluxe compartment, or bridal suite. Boeing built 12 Clippers between 1938 and 1941. The four-engine flying boat had a 3, 500 mile range and made its first trans-Atlantic flight June 28, 1939. |
