In the 1968 movie "2001: A Space Odyssey," passengers journey to Earth orbit aboard Pan Am Clippers. This movie sparked many reservations for Pan Am's first commercial lunar service. Newly hired pilots in the late 1960's were told they were going to fly SST's and Pan Am would be the first American airline to fly supersonic transports.

Unfortunately, none of this came to pass but we can still be inspired by SST concepts of the time. The kit features a balsa nose cone, laser cut balsa fins, water slide decals and a mylar parachute.
