Never even had the opportunity to fly on Pan Am much less work for Pan Am. The conference, however, is very interesting. Completed day one three hours ago. Conference was sold out and people were turned away at the door this morning, however, if you try to come to the events tomorrow you might get lucky and get a seat.
Highlights of today included
"Riding the Reef" author
R.E.G Davies speech
Sergi Sikorski (apologies for the spelling,) speaking about his father

I also want to pay tribute to the pioneer pilot of those routes, Edwin Musik, one of the most outstanding pilots at that time with is crew ( I don't know the other names ), they open what is now a very regular flight across the Pacific but in 1935 it was nothing like a piece of cake, we can't even compare with North Atlantic flights, South Atlantic flights, Africa flights or Asia flights, Pacific was a terrible place to fly!

I am really surprised at the lack of interest here with this event, seeing as we have so many Pan Am people on this site.
I attended this event this weekend in SFO and it basically was a review of Pan Am as it happened, told by the people who lived it. Just amazing.
I will be writing a trip report in the next few days, with pics, of course!
