Trans-Pacific Clipper Over San Francisco Bay
Operated by Pan American World Airways, the Clippers were the first planes to offer regular commercial passenger service from the United States to the Orient. A small harbor was formed between man-made Treasure Island and the natural island of Yerba Buena in order to provide calm waters for the sea planes to land.
