The Legacy Endures: Unveiling of the Pan Am Timeline Exhibit
By Roberta Dunn
On December 5, another piece of Pan Am’s history was added to the airline’s permanent exhibit at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City, NY. “The Pan Am Saga”, a historical timeline, traces the beginning of Pan Am in 1927 to its slow demise and fall in 1991, highlighting moments in the company’s history. John Luetich, the curator and historian, spoke of the difficulty in distilling 64 years of this iconic airline into the events pictured on “my wall” as he lovingly called it.
