The 321 series were added to
pan Am’s fleet in 1959. This was the most successful aircraft till it was
replaced by the B747.
Because of the JT-4 engines
which provided 156 tons of lift and extended it range to 4000 miles, Pan Am jets
could now fly nonstop from New York to Frankfurt, Rome or Rio de Janiero.
Pan Am acquired 120 of the
Boeing 707-300 series.
Pan Am’s all cargo jet
service began in 1963. The 707-321C carried over 38 tons of cargo and allowed
Pan Am to dominate the air cargo market..
