Originally published by Wm. Morrow, in 1995, Skygods is the saga of America's most glamorous airline - from its meteoric ascent to its plunge to extinction. Pan Am blazed the way across the world's oceans with its magnificent Clipper ships, launched the first international jet service, was the first to fly the behemoth 747, was the lead customer for America's SST and the Concorde, and was even taking reservations for the first commercial flights to the moon.
Told from multiple viewpoints - pilots, stewardesses, management executives - Skygods is the life story of an American icon.
Skygods: The Fall of Pan Am
Excellent overview of Pan American with some very funny stories of the early Trip days. Then the book takes you through the sad decline in a completely fascinating way. I could not stop listening to it. The Narrator does an excellent job of telling the story.
