Express Boeing 204L (NC)874E
Another machine picked up with the purchase of Pacific Marine Airways
was this Boeing
204L seen in
Catalina harbor, circa 1928. Note that in those days
it was common not to
paint the "NC" part of
the registration. Shades of New Zealand today, wherein the "ZK-"
is deemed passe
for aircraft operated wholly within the islands. This Boeing was
still flying the
Wilmington - Catalina route as late as 1930.
