In 1927, Pan American Airways was modestly launched with a contract to fly the U.S. Mail from Key West to Havana, Cuba. During 2017, friends and supporters of Pan Am commemorated this landmark event with the publication of a special 90th Anniversary volume that looks back at the history of the airline that helped mold the international commercial airline industry of today. Pan Am - Personal Tributes to a Global Aviation Pioneer is published by the Pan Am Historical Foundation (PAHF), a 501(c)(3) educational foundation, established in 1992 to preserve and promote the legacy of Pan American World Airways. A true collector’s item, this commemorative hard cover edition measuring ten and a half by twelve and a half inches is an oversize coffee-table hardcover book and features a colorful dust jacket. It contains more than 80 stories written by former Pan Am employees and international media friends who had personal experience with many of Pan Am’s key events during its history. The anthology recounts the history of Pan Am from its first flight to its very last and is illustrated with more than 300 images, many in full color, from a variety of sources including PAHF's unique photo library. It also includes posters, promotional brochures, timetables and baggage tags.
