Flying Tiger Line

The 1960s Page 2

A Boeing jet know as the Tigers Polecat completed history's first pole to pole, round the world flight touching down at Honolulu International Airport just 62 hours and 28 minutes after its departure.  Captain Jack L Martin, flight commander and pilot for Flying Tiger, called the trip a very big Success.



By far, the most exciting event was the receipt of the All-Cargo Route #163 across the Pacific into Asia. The Transpacific route opened the doors for Flying Tigers to Asia and the creation of a long-standing and respected relationship between the company and its friends across the Pacific.
