Across The Pacific

Series Overview

ACROSS THE PACIFIC tells the story of a great milestone in aviation history: the 1935 crossing of the Pacific Ocean by a Pan American Airways flying boat known as the China Clipper. The documentary series recounts the development of this technological innovation -led by Pan Am's chief executive Juan Trippe, pilot Charles Lindbergh, airplane engineer Igor Sikorsky and radio engineer Hugo Leuteritz -with dramatic re-enactments, interviews with historians and biographers, and archival photographs, newsreel clips and film.
