The amazing Pan Am Flight 50 experience


On October 30, 1977 Pan American World Airways, affectionately known as Pan Am, made history when one of its Boeing 747SPs (New Horizons’ (N533PA)) completed an amazing flight over both the North and South Pole in a record 54 hours, 7 minutes. Named ‘Pan Am Flight 50’ this amazing flight was a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the airline. The flight lasted from October 28-30, starting at San Francisco Airport, with three stopovers at London Heathrow Airport, Cape Town International Airport, and Auckland Airport. Many wish they could have experienced this journey, including Joe Leader, CEO of APEX. Find out more in the September 2018 issue of Aircraft Interiors International.
