Pan Am: New York-Dakar-Monrovia-Abidjan-Cotonou-Douala
Although Delta Air Lines is rapidly expanding across Africa, and United Airlines is set to begin service to Accra and Lagos in May 2010, there are still so many cities which Pan Am served that have yet to see the return of US jets. Just look at this First-day cover, celebrating the launch of Pan Am's New York-Dakar-Monrovia (Robertsfield)-Abidjan-Cotonou-Douala service on 16 May, 1965. What a golden age.
