Pan Am Boeing 707 Wing Rib Cufflinks
Own a piece of history! These cufflinks are crafted from the aluminum fuselage of "Clipper Emerald Isle" N880PA, a Pan Am Boeing 707 which flew from 1968-1981. In 1983, Pan Am celebrated the 25th anniversary of the inaugural New York to Paris flight of the Boeing 707 and used N880PA for the flight. The plane, which had been in storage, was repainted and retrofitted with newspapers, movies and even a Maxim’s of Paris menu used on the inaugural flight. The aluminum fuselage used in this item is from an authentic Boeing 707 used by Pan Am in 1983 to celebrate 25 years of 707 jet service.
