The book is loaded with vintage photos of early aircraft landing in the tropics, of founder Juan Trippe and longtime Pan Am advisor, Charles Lindberg, as well as art deco brochures and jet age memorabilia. The juxtaposition of fabulous pictures, creative and original advertising art and lucid prose makes this book stand out in its genre of coffee table books.
The author captures with great style the legend of Pan Am from the heroic pilots and their engineering feats (e.g. the first crossing of the Pacific Ocean) to the best flight attendants in the world. Anyone who traveled internationally after World War II will remember how wonderful it was to be served by the elite of the airline industry.
If you miss the romance of traveling to far away places, this is the book for you. Pan Am, An Aviation Legend faithfully salutes our memory of Pan American World Airways as the airline that with panache transported us abroad.
Whether you are American or European or Asian or South American or African my guess is that your experience with this book about Panamerican World Airways ("The World's Most Experienced Airline") will be one of nostalgia. Pan Am brought us together. It truly contributed to making the world a smaller place.
We the extended Pan Am family, employees and passengers will revere this book as a fitting tribute to Pan Am's pioneering spirit.
Pan Am, An Aviation Legend will be on most prominent display in the home of all of us.
Mr. Dan The Pan Am Man
