Default ^ the real seamaster!

The Yankee Clipper-1939 off SF's Treasure island; the California Clipper in docking cradle off Treasure Island in the seaplane harbor at Treasure Isalnd c. 1940. I spent a year in that rat-infested huge hanger on the set of 2010's TV show TRAUMA The Hawaii Clipper in the dolly. She disappeared enroute from Guam to Manila: July 27, 1938 Rumours abounded, as they do when there’s no evidence to be found. It had been only a year since Amelia Earhart had disappeared in the same waters.
Quote:
There is a theory that the Hawaii Clipper disappearance was the result of a hijacking-A popular theory with the media was that Japanese agents had slipped into the Clipper’s baggage compartment on Guam. The theory goes that they took control of the aircraft mid-flight and hijacked it to Truk Atoll by radical officers of the Imperial Japanese Navy where her fifteen crew members and passengers were murdered, then entombed within a slab of wet concrete on Dublon Island at Truk Atoll, and the American government continues to keep this secret from the Japanese government and the American people.
MOVE OVER AMELIA! Ya gotta love it!
