Pan Am's Clippers were the most modern, most luxurious, most magnificent flying machines in the sky. And the men who commanded them weren't simply pilots, they were "Masters of Ocean Flying Boats" who were regarded by many (often including themselves) with a mixture of awe and reverence. Pan Am was America's flag carrier to the world. There was nothing else like it. Its flight crews were the most experienced and the most respected in all of aviation. To be a part of that operation at that moment in history was an experience without equal and one probably never to be known again.
