 A Small Note from History: One of the historical gems that HistoryMiami Archives highlights in their online exhibit, is the story of Pan American World Airways' dramatic rescue of a Cuban government official, Orestes Ferrara, in a plane piloted by Captain Leo Terletzky. We found some visual records to enhance that story.

The Archives exhibit, Aviation in Miami: The First 100 Years, has been online since 2012, having had a successful run for a full year at the HistoryMiami Museum. Link to another page concerning Pan Am's participation in Miami's past, and be sure take a look through the entire exhibit for Pan Am images and other unique photos of airline history in Miami.
