The Story of Pan Am – Juan Trippe’s American Dream


  1. Once again I made an attemp to watch the video about Pan-Am, but once again the time goes to 17 seconds and then reverts back to zero.

  2. I checked on my pc but everything seems to be allright. It works. Try clicking on the Video title and load it on Youtube. Maybe it works better for you there. Another thing could be, that your internet connection got interrupted.
    Good luck!
