AIR & SPACE MAGAZINE — Pretend to Fly Pan Am — On a Hollywood Sound Stage

By Phil Scott July 20, 2015 Original Story The Pan Am Experience aims to recreate a bygone era when airline food was good.

METASCOTT.com — My Time Traveling Pan Am Experience

By Scott Walker June 8, 2015 Original Story “And where are you flying today?” Where, indeed? I’ve just stepped up to the check-in counter for my Pan Am Experience “flight,” and according to Air Hollywood‘s website, I’m about to “relive the magic of flying onboard a luxurious Pan Am 747.” In this case, I’ll be flying on board a specific 747, the Pan Am Clipper Juan T.
