Pan Am Airplane
Photograph - Photography
This beautiful early Pan Am airplane is on display in the Aerospace Museum in Balboa Park in San Diego, California. This takes you back to the time when air travel was glamorous. The plane seems so incredibly small by comparison to our modern jets. I image no more than twenty passengers crowded into this plane. The Ford tri-motor engine, (I think) is striking in an industrial, steampunk kind of way. I love all the texture on this proud bird, too. It's fun to think about how this shiny silver plane must have looked in its heyday.
