This is a very rare and highly collectible vintage Pan Am Life Vest. This was pulled from a retired airplane and was still in the yellow plastic pouch when we received it, but we opened it and have lost the pouch. However, you won't be dissapointed as it is in excellent mint condition as seen in the pictures.
There were several versions of these vests. The previous one we sold had Pan Am in blue and was a newer version from the 1980s. This one is more desirable since it is from the 1970s, when PanAm ruled the skies.
Date of manufacture: OCT 1, 1973
Date of last inspection: 2-77 (February 1977).
This is truly a "must have" piece for the serious Pan Am collector and fan. Don't wait too long and miss out as this is the only one we have. Imagine all the countries and cities this vest has travelled to during its service! Life Vests are harder to find and collect, as it is against the law to remove from an operating airplane!
