The original PanAm seaplane hangers in Miami's Coconut Grove, an upscale urban district of the city that caters mainly to tourists, just south of downtown are finally being restored. They will be repainted and redone to thier original glory, even though they will have new tennants in the form of a gourmet market.

Its heartening to see, even though the real Pan Am is long gone, that someone out there is seeing to the preservation of this historic airline's assets. If it wasn't for Pan Am, many of the routes we take for granted today, may not exist (and even the venerable 747 may not have become a reality without Pan Am's Juan T. Trippe pushing for it).

Yes, it is. Pan Am's original world headquarters in Miami are restored in all thier glory as Miami's City Hall. It is beautiful inside, restored directly to spec. The only thing missing is the giant Pan Am globe, which currently resides in the lobby of the Miami Museum of Science & Transit Planetarium.

The old PanAm seaplane terminal still exists on Treasure Island, a stop on the Bay Bridge between SFO and OAK. Great old art-deco building - was part of a Navy base for the last 60 years or so.

Does anybody know whether it's being restored as well?

I love long German words like 'Freundschaftsbezeigungen'.
