• The Long Way Home

    The story of how a Pan American Airways B-314 flying boat, caught in the South Pacific, made an unplanned flight around the world following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Flying in total secrecy and radio blackout, Captain Ford and his 10 man crew flew over 31,500 miles in six weeks, avoiding enemy action in their effort to return safely to the United States. An astounding feat in 1941!

  • Death on the China Clipper

    It’s September 6, 1939. Twenty-seven lucky passengers are about to board the famous China Clipper bobbing at anchor in San Francisco harbor.

Together he and Reiko set out to solve the murder, putting their own lives in danger. Naturally, Reiko’s father is the prime suspect. Death on the China Clipper illuminates Pan American’s conquest of the Pacific by air in the 1930’s—one of aviation’s great (and largely forgotten) triumphs.
