PAN AMERICAN'S PACIFIC PIONEERS
The Rest of the Story
Jon E. Krupnick
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.
" To call this volume the definitive work on Pan American's Pacific pioneering flights seems inadequate. It is by far the most complete reference ever written about a fascinating time in aviation history."
