Remembering Pan Am’s Air Bridge

We have spent lots of time in recent weeks talking about the history of seaplanes and its impact on Florida. As we’ve discussed before Chalk’s International Airways was bought in 1996 by Pan Am (the second edition of the famous airline) and rebranded as the “Pan Am Air Bridge” which brought back memories of the airline’s defunct predecessor of the same name. Pan Am Air Bridge not only operated regularly scheduled services from Miami and Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas but also special service to Fort Jefferson at Dry Tortugas National Park.  Below are pics some photos of brochures from my always growing Florida History memorabilia collection regarding the Pan Am service.
