In 1942, Tom Kewin applied to Pan American Airways for a job on the iconic Pan Am Clipper flying boats, then provided wartime service to the Navy out of Treasure Island. That was the start of a Flight Engineer career spanning an aviation era from the first transpacific passenger service to the Boeing 747. Hear Mr. Kewin's personal recollections of his life and times on Treasure Island and around the world.

Tom Kewin is a Pan American Airways veteran and author of the book The Pan Am Journey. He lives in Mill Valley.
