Pan American Airways Africa Limited 1941-1942

October 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Pan American formed a subsidiary, contracted by the US and British governments, in mid-1941 to develop an air transport network across middle Africa to Cairo to resupply British combat units engaged with German ground and air forces. Pan Am further ferried US military lend lease aircraft from the US to Africa, Pakistan, and China. More than 1000 American men were thus engaged in WWII before Pearl Harbor and the formal US entry into the war.

Program free with regular paid admission.
