Pan American World Airways, Aviation History Trhough the Voices of Its People is the follow-on to Jamie Baldwin's Pan American World Airways, Images of a Great airline. Baldwin and co-author, Jeff Kriendler captured the stories of many former "Pan Amers" for this collection of accounts from early on until the last flight.
“Pan American World Airways – Aviation History through the Words of its People is a tribute to the legacy of one of the world’s great airlines and the men and women who for six decades were the soul of the Company. James Baldwin and Jeff Kriendler have created a compelling book, which through the words of its contributors captures much of the joy, adventure and spirit which was Pan Am.
