The fully-restored video of Pan Am Clipper Ocean Pearl 747 taken back in the mid-1980s over Florida. Originally edited by Tom Sceurman. Aerial camera/video by Clay Lacy. Extended video edit by Sparkingwave.
This video features an early Pan Am 707-300, with the taller vertical stab, and large sized ventral fin. Nice, up-close shots of the Pratt & Whitney JT4As looking very smart in natural, polished aluminim finish. Also an American Airlines 720B take-off sequence.
This aircraft PP-PEF was purchased from Pan Am on 11/13/63, and sold back to Pan Am on 9/9/65. She flew for the Brasilian carrier just long enough to make this movie! Gorgeous B&W cinematography, a classic jetliner with beautifully polished aluminum engine cowlings, and a pretty 1960s Stewardess.
