Sikorsky S-42B

Reg. NC16735 Sikorsky S-42B c/n 4208 of PAA-Pan American Airways System built in 1936. Named Bermuda Clipper, then Alaska Clipper, and finally Hong Kong Clipper II before it was destroyed on 8 December 1941 at Kai Tak Airport during the Battle of Hong Kong.
This footage is used to illustrate the exiled Lucky Luciano's arrival in Cuba for the mob summit where Bugsy is condemned (in 1947) ... which is a historical inaccuracy, since the 10 aircraft built had all been destroyed by then (the last 3 having been dismantled in 1946).
