KQED.ORG – The Pan Am Mystique Lives on — in Pacoima

By Avishay Artsy, KCRW APRIL 18, 2015 Want to relive the golden years of aviation? In a warehouse miles from Hollywood, you’ll find a high-class tribute to the beloved airline Pan Am. Every other Saturday night, customers line up outside a warehouse in Pacoima to relive a nostalgic experience. As a small boy, said Anthony Toth, “I started collecting airplane models, and small things like timetables and luggage tags. But as I got older, the desire to have more and more aircraft things became greater and greater.” ‘Tears came to my eyes, because it was so real.’ So much so that Toth visited so-called airport graveyards in the deserts that sold larger pieces of fuselage … “sidewall panels, and overhead bins, […]

It maintains multiple aircraft for film crews to use, and allows them to alter the construction of the planes in order to get just […]
