United's Boeing 377 Stratocruiser Mainliner Kona departing for the mainland from the John Rodgers Airport on Lagoon Drive in the mid- 50's. What I love about this photo are the spectators viewing the Stratcruiser's departure. A true "Blast From the Past". United named various Stratocruisers with Hawaii names. Mainliner Hana Maui, Mainliner Hawaii, and Mainliner Waipahu after the birthplace of United's chariman William A. "Pat" Patterson. Click for larger image.
