From the Contributor:

Director: This documemtary took ten years in the making due the the trmendous difficulty in finding archival footage that clearly demonstrated the effort of individuals and each airplane envolved. It was thrill to see it come to completion and relize the tremendous effort and sacrifice these men made. This was know easy challenge. It took lots of hard work and determination on the part of Pan Am and its people. We feel we were able to present this unbelievable effort and aviation milestone in this program.
