Pan American World Airways - Pan Am
Boeing 747-121
Los Angeles - International (LAX / KLAX)
USA - California, November 1969
Remark
Photographer
N734PA (cn 19641/7) Clipper Flying Cloud, later Clipper Champion of the Seas. First flown on 10/31/1969, Pan Am brought this 747, line number 7, to LAX in November 1969 for it's debut showing and public display. I believe this was the very first time a 747 was at LAX. The photograph was taken on the Imperial Terminal ramp. 734PA flew for Pan Am until the airline ceased operations in 1991. Later with UPS as N691UP, the airplane has now been scrapped.
