The third and last episode “Another Ocean” will be available online through PBS on June 5th.

ACROSS THE PACIFIC tells the story of a great milestone in aviation history: the 1935 crossing of the Pacific Ocean by a Pan American Airways flying boat known as the China Clipper. The documentary series recounts the development of this technological innovation – led by Pan Am’s chief executive Juan Trippe, pilot Charles Lindbergh, airplane engineer Igor Sikorsky and radio engineer Hugo Leuteritz – with dramatic re-enactments, interviews with historians and biographers, and archival photographs, newsreel clips and film.

    Hi Jeff and Guy:

    Thanks for spreading the word about Across the Pacific. Please note that your post implies that the Pan Am Historical Foundation (www.panam.org) was assisted in its several-year cooperative effort with Moreno-Lyons Productions to produce the series by other organizations, such as the Pan Am Museum. This is not the case.

    1. Thanks Doug! I’ve updated the posts. I think I originally grabbed pieces of the Pan Am Historical Foundation’s write-up on the documentary to post. Looking forward to posting Part III next week.
