It covers the multiple reasons for the plane's conception. stages of construction, testing, delivery flights, christenings, inaugural operations, established records, World War II special missions' histories, post-war services and the individual demise accounts surrounding each of the twelve models built specifically for Pan Am. The history of sales to and operations with British Overseas Airways (B.O.A.C.) — now British Airways — is also included in in-depth coverage.
