Thread: Pan Am Worldport (Image Heavy)

  1. #1

    Pan Am Worldport (Image Heavy)

    With the rapid dismantling of the iconic Pan Am Worldport at JFK, I thought it was an appropriate time to share a few images from the rooftop of the building in it's heyday. A great vantage point for all of the action:

    Air Afrique DC8 used to arrive very early morning and sit here until after sunset before departing back to Abidjan in the Ivory Coast - check out the tails at the IAB




    TWA 707 taxiing back to the company's terminal following a 31L arrival


    Had to love all of the Pan Am action at the Worldport






























    Hope you enjoy - I sure miss this vantage point

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Wow....what a collection! During my college days while working at JFK for Allied Aviation, I probably handled some of those aircraft in those photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome stuff Trevor. I remember those birds clear as day. Although, that Braniff is unfamiliar. I know the livery, but not the Black/Green variant. Thanks for sharing!
