The China Clipper was a Martin M-130 that belonged to Pan American World Airways. It was famous for being one of few Martin M-130s in existence, due to the fact that only 3 of it's model were produced, all for Pan American World Airways. The other two were the Philippine Clipper and the Hawaii Clipper.
The China Clipper was destroyed in a crash during a refuel for a destination of Leopoldville. It landed too low, and soon afterward sank. 23 on-board died while 7 survived, including Captain C.A. Goyette, who was in-charge of the flight.
