Skygods: The Fall of Pan Am

#ad
#ad
Black Star Productions #ad - Pan am employees were rocked by the company's decision to purchase a domestic carrier - at an eventual cost of nearly a billion dollars. Gandt takes readers behind the scenes at Pan Am's executive offices in the landmark Pan Am building - a massive edifice to the founder's personal vision. In skygods, robert gandt, a pan am pilot for twenty-six years, gives the first inside account of Pan Am's unprecedented demise.

He shows how a series of impulsive and short-sighted CEOs succeeded in destroying one of America's greatest companies. To tell the complete story, Gandt interviewed hundreds of former Pan Am airmen and executives. Used book in Good Condition. The airline that could bend the wills of American presidents was reduced to relying on the Shah of Iran for the financial salvation it would never receive.

Skygods: The Fall of Pan Am #ad - Ultimately, it was a senseless terrorist act over Scotland that shattered Pan Am forever - and ended an era in American travel. Under aviation pioneer juan trippe, the airline had risen from the muddy back-waters of Latin America to a place of preeminence in world commerce. Strapped with debt and flying half-empty planes to places like Monrovia, Rabat, and Lagos, Pan Am then stunned its employees by selling its profitable Pacific routes.

Told from points of view of airmen and executives, Skygods gives the inside story on the demise of the world's most experienced airlines. Though pan am captains were considered the best and the brightest in the industry, who flew at the wrong altitude and in the wrong direction, Skygods tells disturbing stories of captains who let stewardesses land their planes, and who tragically disappeared along with their planes into the night.

America's Local Service Airlines

#ad - With a fleet of more than 400 aircraft. Used book in Good Condition. These were america’s permanently-certificated Local Service Airlines. In his book, airlines of the united states since 1914, ron davies remarks that “the ever-increasing amount of government subsidy that was required to keep the Local Service Airlines serving the small cities of America” or ‘Main Street, USA’ as the carriers themselves liked to refer to their destinations “persuaded those who cherished a vision of an ideal transport world to come to terms with economic realities.

That was the crux of the local airline conundrum. During the roughly 34 years that regulated local service was in play, from the announcement of the feeder airline experiment 1944 to the signing of the Airline Deregulation Act 1978, America’s certificated Local Service Airlines provided small cities in the continental United States with dependable scheduled air service and a level of reliable, attractive and comfortable transportation that most of those cities have not seen since.

VC10: Icon of the Skies: BOAC, Boeing and a Jet Age Battle

#ad
#ad
Pen and Sword #ad - But the era of the vc10 was pivotal and, by exploring this historical period in depth and highlighting all the various impediments that stood in the way of success for the VC10, Lance Cole adds an important layer to our understanding of twentieth century history. It was safe, fast, and designed to take off from short runways in Africa and Asia, at the request of its main operator BOAC - the airline that would later go on to become today’s British Airways.

The vc10 and the larger super vc10 were beloved by pilots and passengers alike and became icons of the 1960s. Used book in Good Condition. Other books have charted the vc10 in airline life, but this book blends that story with a well-researched tale of corporate and political power play. They were hugely popular all over the world; East African Airlines made its name with Super VC10s, and so too did Freddie Laker with his famed VC10 fleet.

Yet the vc10 was eclipsed by boeing’s 707 which sold by the hundreds, despite the fact that the 707 was less capable and could not initially operate from the runways of the Commonwealth and old British Empire routes, as the VC10 undoubtedly could. The men of the vickers company who created the VC10 would later go on to engineer Concorde and, of course, the rest is history.

VC10: Icon of the Skies: BOAC, Boeing and a Jet Age Battle #ad - Key players in the story, from Tony Benn to famous test pilot Brian Trubshaw Concorde, are cited and quoted. The vc10 was the nation’s biggest jet airliner of its age and regarded as the world’s best looking airliner. It asks; just what lay behind the sales failure of the vc1o? politics played an important part of course, as did BOAC’s tactics, and a ’who dunnit’ cast of politico-corporate events and machinations at the highest level of society during the dying days of Empire in 1960s Britain.
