"Pan Am’s China Clipper soars over an old Chinese junk near Hong Kong harbor" 

Pan Am’s “China Clipper”, a Martin M-130 flying boat equipped for passengers and mail, made aviation history when in November of 1935, it made the first Air Mail flight to cross the Pacific Ocean. Starting out in Alameda, California (across the bay from San Francisco) on the 22nd, the China Clipper called on Honolulu, Midway Island, Wake Island, and Guam before arriving in the Philippine capital of Manila a week later.

Notable among the crew were pilot Captain Ed Musick (who also flew Pan Am’s inaugural commercial flight in 1927, between Havana, Cuba, and Key West Florida) and navigator Fred Noonan (who disappeared with Amelia Earhart in her ill-fated round-the-world flight in 1937).
