Found in Canada - An old Pan Am Terminal Building

Recommended Posts

 

On a trip to Newfoundland last week….I stopped by the small town of Botwood that played a major role in the development of transatlantic commercial air service.

Here’s the original Terminal Building used by Pan Am in the late 1930’s through the mid ‘40s during the Flying Boat Era.

There’s an interesting Museum there depicting that heritage:

This is a floating kerosene Flare Pot that marked the landing area out in the Bay of Exploits

Here’s the schedule at Botwood in 1945. By the following year the Flying Boat era was over and Pan Am had relocated 40 miles away to Gander and the TATL service was now on a DC-4.
