On January 16, 1928, seven passengers riding aboard a Fokker-7 inaugurated Pan American World Airlines passenger services as they flew from Key West to Havana. Over the next six decades, PanAm would grow and prosper, as it created an extensive system of routes that took early jet-setters all around the world. While the airline did experience a rebirth in the mid-1990s, its demise was hastened after the tragedy onboard Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988.Created by Beth Cozzi-Stewart, this site provides interested parties with access to a great deal of colorful material on the history of the company. Some of the offerings include a detailed history spanning PanAm's years, a chronology of the aircraft they utilized, and information about the various accidents that befell the company. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the site is the "Multimedia" section, which includes the PanAm jingles "Just Say Hello to PanAm" and "We Fly the Way the World Wants to Fly".
