I was listening to Benny Goodman's rendering of "Moonglow" recently

and was reminded of the very romantic scene of Katherine Hepburn and Howard Hughes flying over the lights of LA in the film "Aviator" in a Sikorsky S-38

and that in turn led me to this nice image of an S-42 flying over the San Francisco Bay Bridge during construction.
