During the very late 1920s an airline service was organized to fly passengers and mail across the Isthmus of Panama. Isthmian Airways could make the flights in 30 minutes in the new all metal airplane made by Hamilton Metalplane Company (which merged with Boeing in 1926).

    I have an original 1930’s advertising brochure for Isthaman Airways that I would like to scan and post. How can I share it ?
