browsing the web I came across the panam.org site, which lists
under Pan Am Firsts, that in 1972 Pan Am became the first airline
"to operate FAA-certified visual approach monitor heads up pilot
Pan Am Firsts
(scroll down to 1972)
This surprised me a bit as I thought that Alaska Airlines was
the first airline to use HUDs in their 727s.
Does anyone remember more details about the HUD use at Pan Am?
Which aircraft where fitted with HUDs and what type of HUD was used?
Would be great is someone still knew and could shed some light on this.
