Summary
Author and aviation historian Trautman provides an interesting and nostalgic look back at the era of the Pan American Airways Clipper "flying boats." That era, roughly from 1931 through the mid-1940s, saw the Clippers play a major role in the development of transatlantic flight, provide airmail between countries, and serve as troop and cargo transports during World War II. The relatively fast Clippers also opened up a new era of international travel to the general public--and gave travel by Clipper an unmistakable aura of romance. The book contains numerous rare period photographs and colorful vintage travel posters, magazine ads, and travel brochures. It is distributed by Firefly Books.
