For a world coming out of economic depression in the 1930s, the Pan American Airways Clipper "flying boats" symbolized elegance and luxury, adventure and romance. Illustrated with rare period photographs, vintage travel posters, magazine ads, and colorful company brochures, this fascinating book covers every aspect of the fabulous era of Pan American's graceful clippers. Like their maritime namesakes, the Clippers used the oceans to form a vast global network of travel routes. Pan Am founder Juan Trippe was a visionary who saw the importance of international travel to a changing world. His Clippers would play a key role in the evolution of transoceanic flight, setting time and distance records over the Atlantic and Pacific, providing airmail delivery between countries, and eventually serving the Allies as troop and cargo transports during WWII. Pan Am Clippers permanently changed the world's concept of time and space by dramatically reducing travel time and opening up international air travel to the general public. This fascinating, informative and richly illustrated book brings back another time and way of life. Paperback and approx. 296 pages.

This edition has an additional 16 pages to add more historical and current information and provide additional detail and context to the historical importance of the flying boats, including:

• Pan Am's Art Deco terminals
• the fate of the last Pan Am Clippers and where to see the survivors
• the Foynes Flying Boat Terminal, Ireland
• Trippe and Lindbergh's groundbreaking flight to Asia by way of the Great Circle Route (Canada-Alaska-Siberia-Japan-China)
• Shediac, New Brunswick, the landing site of 24 Savoia Manchetti S-55 flying boats from Rome en route to Chicago's Century of Progress International Exposition
• Pan Am enters politics when Frank Roosevelt uses it in Latin America to sidestep the World War II Neutrality Act
• Trippe's long-held dream of flying mail and passengers across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, and the opening of LaGuardia Airport.
