Obviously a posed picture. The pax in the front aren't wearing seatbelts. It has to be from the old days, because everybody's happy.


Flying Colors Forever!

Hey thanks...Question: Photo # 16, is that new metal line-up at Boeing, the 707's? And, #23 is very good indeed, Planes, Boats and Autos accompanied with a stylish hairdo!

Only a small number of those 23 photos have anything to do with Pan Am. The heading is rather misleading.

WOW! A couple of these pictures bring back memories when I got to fly the big props as a kid traveling to/from military assignments with my parents.
I remember flying on a BOAC DC-7C (foto #19) between New York and Bermuda in 1958. We were served a hot meal that included a small 2 cigarette pack of Marlboro's. Point was you smoked after your meal and the airline provided the cigarettes. Coffee, cognac and a cigarette. How civilized! Eastern did the same thing on our return flight from Bermuda to DCA in 1959 on a Constellation. Trust me, my Mother made sure I handed over the cigarettes from my tray.
I distinctly remember the "hostess" ( I fell in love with her, the uniform and accent!) advising me I could not have cognac, but she served me cold milk in the very elegant glass, and gave me an extra pudding dessert. To this day, I remember "Miss Topping." I also got a visit to the cockpit, sitting in the jumpseat for over an hour, and remember the Captain pointing out that we were flying at an amazing 315 miles per hour! The scheduled flying time between New York and BDA was about 4 hours, and that aircraft continued on to London.
I never imagined I would eventually top that trip on BOAC by flying on a BA Concorde in 2000, and I felt just like that 1958 kid all over again! Where was Miss Topping?
Thanks for sharing the memories,
Thomas
P.S. The hotpants F/A's? BN on a 707 or WN on the early 737's? The PSU is definitely Boeing, but don't recognize the "uniform" or cabin layout.



watch what you want. you may get it.

I'm pretty sure it's WN in their very early days.
