It is 1966, and the world's most glamorous airline is at the apogee of its high-flying career. Pan Am has the greatest fleet of jets, the most international flights, and the fattest balance sheet of any airline in the world. Pan Am is headed for the stars.
And then something happens. In this compelling story, award-winning author Robert Gandt tells the inside story of Pan Am's meteoric rise and fall. You will fly with Pan Am's Skygods and Skygoddesses during the golden age of airline elegance. You meet the iconic players in the Pan Am saga--Juan Trippe, Charles Lindbergh, Igor Sikorsky, the Shah of Iran. You will experience the high drama of pioneering transocean flights, wartime exploits in the Pacific, Vietnam, the Middle East, and you will grieve when an act of terrorism sends the great airline to its death.
