Pan Am

The new TV Series, Pan Am, aired this past Sunday night full of drama and glamour.  The stewardesses (not flight attendants) were dressed to perfection and weighed on the scales periodically by their head stewardess.  The pilots are all handsome gentlemen more concerned with finding a girlfriend than landing the plane.  It is extremely hard to believe that air travel was ever as gracious or customer friendly and fun.  Pan Am was the principal and largest international air carrier in the United Stated from 1927 until its financial collapse in 1991.

The Beatles arriving at New York's JFK Airport via Pan Am's Clipper Defiance on Feb.2, 1964 changed music in Ameria forever.
