California's Gold #906 - CHINA CLIPPER
They were huge flying boats named after the great sailing ships that in the1800's sailed the oceans of the world. The luxurious Pan American"Clipper" planes of the 1930's took cargo, mail and passengers aroundthe world in what was, for its time, considered a daring and pioneering feat.

Pan American's Treasure Island terminal and lagoon became the home port forthe Clipper's Pacific operations -- connecting the United States with the FarEast by air. Starting in the mid-1930s, and lasting for only five years,residents of the Bay Area were treated to the sights and sounds of these hugeboat planes taking off and heading out over the Pacific.

Recently in a very special episode of "California's Gold," historyrepeated itself as, once again, a boat plane landed on the Bay, taxied up to adocking area near Treasure Island, took on passengers and flew out over thecity. This episode is a tribute to the "China Clipper" and itsCalifornia connection.

The original Terminal building on Treasure Island is the stage where formerPan American pilots and crew members who actually flew the Clipper, gather oncemore for conversation and reminiscing. Producer/host, Huell Howser experienceshis high point when he climbs aboard one of these historic boat planes with twoformer crew members for a short, exciting flight around the Bay area.

The days of the Clipper are gone forever, replaced decades ago by long-rangejets. But for a few hours on a beautiful spring afternoon, some of the glorydays of the great Clipper ships, and the people who made those days happen,returned to Treasure Island.

It's a look back at a glorious part of our aviation history as we take to theair in search of "California's Clipper Gold".
