Oct. 4, 2011– MIAMI  "What a great night for all of us Pan Amers and Pan Am kids!  I have been a news reporter and anchor in South Florida for 13 years, but it took the premiere of the new t.v. series "Pan Am" to bring me to the Pan Am Flight Academy for the first time!  What a perfect setting to share a trip back in time through the new show.

So many donned their original Pan Am uniforms.  I couldn't believe their hats and gloves were still in perfect condition as if they could pass inspection at that moment!  The funniest moment came after the first commercial break in the show.  The scene showed a stewardess popping champagne and stealing a quick sip before placing it in the ice cooler.  A whole group of ladies in the audience just howled in laughter, saying "Oh my gosh!  We used to do that!".

The only thing that would have made the night better, would have been to share it with my step-father, Captain John Harris.  He was chief pilot out of JFK Airport in the early '80s, and he literally showed me the world — Clipper Class!  John passed away a year ago this week after a long battle with prostate cancer, but he leaves me with endless memories of those great coupon books where we could write our own ticket; travelling with fellow Pan Amers who always knew the best places to shop and eat; and dressing up to travel because it was something to be appreciated and respected.

I will always feel blessed to have been a small part of the Pan Am family."
