This lavishly illustrated book describes the history of the Pan American World Airways routes to Norway. As early as 1936 it wanted to start a trial service and in 1940 actually an air service, but it had to wait until after the Second World War. Its fascinating story is told here, all the way until the end in 1991. The author describes the intense conversation between the Nordic airline companies and Pan American Airways before the war and gives a historic detailed description of the post-war development, including many photographs, timetables, posters and advertisements from that time. Pages are dedicated to marketing and sales, the Oslo office and its two most well-known directors: Derek L Blix and Berit Sjølund. A final chapter describes the work of the World Wings International, the Norwegian Chapter, the association of former Pan Am stewardesses.
