Tokyo, Pan Am, the SST and Hawaii

          As a follow-up to my previous post here back in the 1980’s, I departed from Narita Airport in Tokyo on an overnight and almost empty PAN AM 747 to Hawaii. I would meet my wife, Jeanne, as she arrived from New York, where there was a glimpse of the British Airways Concorde Super Sonic Transport, at that time providing regular transatlantic service at over 1300 MPH (~ 2100 kph.)

Sleep, stretched out on empty seats, was easy on the overnight, above  …and  approaching Honolulu, below.
