Oregon (BB-3) at the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition in San Francisco, 1915.
Interesting background to the photo:
The advertisements read: "Fly with the Loughead Brothers: 10 minutes for $10."
More than 600 people were safely carried at the fair with Allan and Malcolm Loughead (pronounced: "Lockheed") flying their personally designed and built, 3-place, 80-HP Model G Hydroplane. They netted $4000 in fifty flying days. Such were the beginnings of the Lockheed Aircraft Company.
