Wallis Island, Halalo beach, 1943


"This 4 motor Pan American seaplane landed on top of a reef at Halalo and tore a hole in the bottom. The pilot ran the flying boat 4 motors up on the beach next to fuel ramp. It took 30 days to fix.
Steve BANCROFT, pilot Pan American Airways. I am in the picture, Lou BRISTOW.
In 1944, Steve flew this same plane UNDER the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. He was a real dare devil."
