This book is out of print. A new "replacement" volume entitled Pan American's Pacific Pioneers: The Rest of the Story, with over 600 pages will be released October 2000. You may pre-order this book. We will ship it to you when it is released.
Pan Am's Pacific Pioneers traces the development of air mail and passenger flights across the Pacific from the building of the island bases at Wake and Midway in 1935 to the last Pacific Clipper flight in April of 1946 when Pan Am's flying boat era came to an end.
By featuring the first flight souvenir covers as well as Pan Am's pictures, brochures, and time tables, the hard work, frustration, tragedy and ultimate success of Pan Am's trail blazing efforts is fully documented.
Whether you collect first flight covers or not, you will enjoy seeing the covers in color and the wonderful stories that they tell.
