Growing up in the 1970s on the island of Guam made Pan Am the "hometown airline" of young James Martinez. James lived near the airport and would watch Pan Am's Boeing 747 flights to Manila and Honolulu come and go. Pan Am also had service to Tokyo but that was operated with Boeing 707 equipment.
Occasionally, James would go to the airport to see the aircraft close-up. If his timing was right he would see a crew change to or from the long haul flight to Honolulu. The pace of travel was more gentle in the 1970s and James got to know a few of the flight attendants who passed through Guam on a regular basis. He would chat with them on their way to or from the terminal. James often brought his camera and enjoyed taking pictures of his 'jet set' friends. Below are a few examples of his pictures.
James remained a life long Pan Am fan and continued to fly with Pan Am and take pictures wherever possible even after leaving Guam to serve in the US Military in the 1980s.
Today, James is living in Texas. He will retire from the Military in 2009 and still has many fond memories of the wonderful people he met at Pan Am.
