Airways Sikorsky S-38B N945M
In 1929 Pan American-Grace acquired a fleet of six of the
ungainly looking Sikorsky S-38 twin
engined twin boom
amphibians. The above shot (courtesy of Panagra) was taken at
the Panama Canal Zone,
the northern terminus of their routes to South America.
ancient machines were
flown on passenger and air mail schedules all the way to Lima, Peru.

loading mail, although not identifying the individual aircraft (in all
NC945M), is interesting in
that it gives a close up view of the passenger cabin.
