Since becoming a member of the WWI Board of Directors in 2008 I wanted to find a way to preserve our personal histories as flight attendants with Pan Am.
A little background: The original idea for this project began in the early 1990's when a group of World Wings members started an oral history project. Taking oral histories was a difficult proposition then and today it isn't feasible due to the necessity, and cost, of having a professional studio handle the recording. No longer are the old cassette tapes acceptable. The times have changed.
Please look under History of World Wings on the menu bar to access a Questionnaire which can be printed. All former Pan Am flight attendants, female and male, retired or currently working for another airline, are welcome to complete the Questionnaire.
Our time with Pan Am will make fascinating reading for future generations. Responses to questions such as "Describe any flights that were particularly memorable" and "Who are some of the famous/remarkable/interesting people you met on your flights?" and "What significant events do you remember that occurred in the world, in a particular country or in Pan Am...and how were you affected by them?" had some of the most interesting comments. Answers truly told the condition of our world as we experienced it, the fascinating people we met and how we were enriched and affected by our experiences and opportunities.
"Pan Am brought us together. World Wings keeps us together".
