Get in touch with Joyce and Berg. Those are my boys in Washington.
Set up a meeting with Jones, secretary of commerce, old golfing buddy.
We'll need terminals in Ireland and France.
I wanna get some tax breaks.
If that ass thinks he owns the world, he's got another thing coming.
Pan Am owns Europe. We ought to think about Mexico.
To hell with Mexico. No airline should have a monopoly on flying the Atlantic.
It just isn't fair. He owns Pan Am, he owns Congress.
He owns the Civil Aeronautics Board, but he does not own the sky.
We're in a street fight with that son of a bitch.
I've been fighting high-hat Ivy League pricks like him my whole life.
And listen, fire Ray Loewy. You goddamn heard me? Fire Ray Loewy.
He's spying for Trippe. That shitheel knew all about the buttons.

At its height in the 1960's Pan Am was the country's unofficial flag carrier to the rest of the world. But by the 1970's some very down to earth troubles were clipping the wings of the Pan Am clippers. "Sunday Morning" opens their Almanac to December 4th, 1991 when Pan American World Airways shut down operations.
It was 20 years ago that a terrorist-planted bomb blew up a Pan Am Airlines 747, flying from London to New York. There were no survivors. Priya David reports.
The Pan Am crew is full of ...."Secrets". Watch the video featuring the 1960's favorite sexy stewardesses. Watch Pan Am on ABC.

My favorite scene from the movie "Catch Me if You Can". Set in the mid 1960s this specific scene depicts a impersonator Pan Am pilot (DiCaprio) making a run from Miami using eight stewardesses to draw attention away from him. Brilliant!

The Tenerife disaster took place on March 27, 1977, at 17:06:56 local time (also GMT), when two Boeing 747 airliners collided at Los Rodeos (TCI) on the island of Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, killing 583 people. The accident still has the highest number of fatalities (excluding ground fatalities) of any single accident in aviation history. The aircraft involved were Pan Am Flight 1736, named Clipper Victor, under the command of Captain Victor Grubbs, and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Flight 4805, named Rijn (Rhine River), under the command of Captain Jacob Veldhuyzen van Zanten. KLM 4805, taking off on the only runway of the airport, crashed into the Pan Am aircraft which was taxiing on the same runway. Tenerife North Airport (TFN) (then called Los Rodeos - TCI), is situated in the northern part of Tenerife, and is now used mainly for flights within the Canary Islands and flights from the Spanish mainland. We Will remember the People died in the crash. And hope it will never happen again.

The Boeing Model 307 Stratoliner was the first fully pressurized airliner to enter service anywhere in the world. Being able to fly 20,000 feet higher than the 5,000 to 10,000 foot-altitude unpressurized airplanes a that time, it was said that it could "fly above the weather." It carried five crew members and 33 passengers and had a nearly 12-foot wide cabin for overnight berths. The Stratoliner was also the first land-based airplane to have a flight engineer as a member of the crew.
Boeing's Model 299, prototype for the military bomber aircraft, which duly became the B-17 Flying Fortress, was developed in parallel with a civil version of the same aircraft, which had the company designation Boeing Model 300. The Model 307, or Stratoliner, was a straight-forward conversion from the supremely successful B-17 Flying Fortress bomber. It employed the wings and tail surfaces of the B-17C Flying Fortress. The Boeing 307 was developed to start another era, that of pressurized comfort at higher altitudes than had been previously contemplated.
The aircraft was the result of considerable research in high altitude flying by "Tommy" Tomlinson, of TWA, who was estimated to have flown more hours above 30,000 feet, than all other pilots combined. With his recommendations, Boeing produced an airliner which could cruise at 14,000 feet.
The Boeing 307 first flew on December 31, 1938, and TWA put it into service on the transcontinental route on 8 July 1940, reducing the time to 13 hrs. 40 min., and cutting two hours off the DC-3's time.
Three (S-307) Stratoliners flew on Pan Am's South American routes; five (SA-307B) served with TWA, and a ninth (SB-307B) Stratoliner was supplied to Howard Hughes. One Boeing 307 (prototype NX 19901) crashed on March 18, 1939 during a test flight. Each aircraft cost $315,000 in 1937 when ordered. During World War II Stratoliners were employed as military transports (C-75s), flying principally to South America and across the Atlantic. In 1951 the ex-TWA machines, replaced the Four 900 hp (671-kw) Wright GR-1820 Cyclone radial piston engines, with Wright Cyclone 1,200 hp (894 kw) engines. The wings were replaced with B-17G wings. They were then sold to Aigle Azur in France, operating to French IndoChina. Here they became involved with the Vietnam War, worked with operators such as Air Laos and were still flying into the 1970s.
One example survives, The Flying Cloud, and is owned by the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution. After a six year restoration by volunteer Boeing retirees, it was rolled out of the hangar on June 23,2001. Unfortunately, the plane was almost lost, when during a test flight, it ran out of fuel and ditched into Elliot Bay, just west of downtown Seattle. Luckily, the airplane did not suffer severe damage and it was recovered and repaired again. It is currently on display at the museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, at Washington/Dulles International Airport.
