Boeing 314 Clipper: The only way was down.

The 314 supposed the zenith of the civilian flying boat epoch. Other bigger and more powerful came later, but by then the era of these magnificent airliners have ended; WW2 and the rapid landplane technical development took care of that.

Gorgeous photo of its stylish and very seaworthy bow. Its time was already running out…, a shame.
