Well, the caption says "taxiing into position". Is there a more specific question?

If your referring to the fact that a PanAm aircraft is still flying in 2004, it is because the name has been revived to front a new airline, which I think flies around South Eastern USA, sorry I don`t have any specific details save that they use around 20 B727-200's.

I think he does mean what Pan Am makes still in the US Market.

Well, this is not the original Pan Am. This Pan Am on the picture is operating a small fleet of B727s with Winglets. Maindestinations are Airports in the Caribbean. I think this is a correct description. If not, so correct me.

After the original Pan Am failed for bankruptcy there were a lot successors. One of them operated a lot A300s an A310s mainly out of JFK in the late 90's. (95-98?)

Probably a charter.

On a side note, in 2000, they, PAA (version 3.0) came to TPA for a stop on the Gore/Lieberman campaign. I dunno if they were using the plane as a press corps plane, or what. The reason I remember was it was the LOUDEST 727 I have heard in decades. Shook things in my office near TPA as it started it's roll.
