This poster juxtaposes a Short S-25 Sandringham flying boat and a flotilla of sampans in Hong Kong harbour, with a modern Lockheed Constellation flying overhead. The Sandringham was a converted RAF plane used by B.O.A.C. on the Far East routes until 1949 when the land based Constellation was introduced to service.
